Victory on torture outsourcing!

The US torture-outsourcing bill is dead! While the conferance committee reached an agreement (reportedly not including some "controversial" provisions), Congress will not be recalled to vote on it - meaning that the bill will die when the new Congress takes office in January.

It may not be the repudiation we hoped for - we need to see exactly what the conferance committee agreed to - but the bill dying is still a victory.
