Glad it’s been done, but…

This shouldn’t be necessary.

The White House and Sen. John McCain have reached agreement on McCain’s amendment that would ban torture of detainees in U.S. custody, a spokeswoman for the Arizona Republican said on Thursday.

Sadly, I am deeply suspicious of how effective this will be.

Also, doesn’t this contradict Bush’s statements that the United States doesn’t torture?  After all why would a law be necessary, if torture weren’t being done?
