What Yesterday's Compromise Means

I was watching the recording of CBS Evening News with Katie Couric a few minutes ago and I heard most of the details of today's compromise.

The lowdown: Article 3 of the Geneva Conventions stays intact. Now the Bush administration will try to manipulate the War Crimes Act of 1996 to suit their purpose. Count on Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez to pull some maneuver to get it done in the coming days.

You know what to do. It's time to get the word out and put an end to this madness once and for all. Call your Representatives and Senators and let them know modifying the War Crimes Act of 1996 is unacceptable.
