President repents

President Bush reversed course on Thursday and accepted Sen. John McCain's call for a law banning cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment of foreign suspects in the war on terror.

Bush said the agreement will "make it clear to the world that this government does not torture and that we adhere to the international convention of torture, whether it be here at home or abroad." (Associated Press)

Very good. It was a battle the President was going to lose, but I'd like to think that he had a change of heart and thought it was the right thing to do.

Now let's just make sure that, once the law is passed, it is enforced.
