Oops, missed this. You may have heard it already, though. The Graham Amendment. Says NYT, Senate Approves Limiting Rights of U.S. Detainees — remember when the Supreme Court said the Guantanamo detainees could challenge their detention in court? This amendment to a spending bill strips them of that. And in case you were thinking McCain was so cool for coming out against torture, he voted for this amendment.

Still has to pass the House.

Time since first prisoner went to Guantanamo? 1400 days exactly.
