Andrew Sullivan writes about how the U.S. Senate passed an amendment to a military appropriations bill that would bar the U.S. military from indecent treatment of detainees. The amendment passed by a 90-9 vote. This amendment still needs to be passed by the House, and President Bush has threatened to veto it, but it is a huge sign that many people in our government have real perspective on this issue. Scroll down to my blog entry a while ago about Gitmo for more in-depth discussions about how the Bush administration has tried to justify torture.
