You Can Only Torture This Much

According to the NYT the wayward three of McCain, Warner and Graham have reached a compromise with the Whitehouse on the treatment of prisoners. McCain is saying the the Geneva Convention has been protected but Bush is saying that he got what he needs. We'll see.
Evidently the "terrorists" won't be able to see "secret evidence" and I wonder what the grand writ of habeas corpus suffered in the deal.

Frankly, in the current environment and with the last "signing statement" castration of the McCain effort to reign the the torture I won't be surprised to see the same effort on the part of the Whitehouse to use what they can to justify their dirty deeds and ignore the rest.
