This veto should bother US citizens even if they don't expect to be victims themselves. Nuremberg legal principles will apply to the perpetrators and those who order its use who come into the hands of foreign governments: there will be no defense of 'only following orders' for US torturers. Make no mistake, waterboarding is recognized as torture under international law. Bush has taken your county further 'beyond the pale', isolating it from civilized world opinion.

Technomist,

I AGREE with you re: the larger legal, foreign-policy-oriented and humanitarian issues. I was just trying to show that none of us is safe if we support bad policies.
