House Dems Introduce Anti-Torture Bill

In a statement, Delahunt said, "The use of torture and so-called 'enhanced' interrogation -- such as waterboarding -- contradicts our commitment to the rule of law and basic human decency." Their bill complements a Senate measure sponsored by Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-MA) and Sen. Joe Biden (D-DE).

Of course, even if the bills pass, and for some reason President Bush signs them, Bush could easily attach a signing statement saying he'll ignore them when he wants to, as he did with the McCain torture bill.

Progress overnight on deployment of new commenting system. We hope to move into a short beta-testing phase shortly.
