Hey, yes you, keep those gloves on!

Katherine of Obsidian Wings, who has thoroughly documented the Maher Arar scandal, alerts us that "the Republican leadership of Congress is attempting to legalize extraordinary rendition".

The best way to enforce the convention is the public noticing the foul play at hand and sharply telling politicians to lay it off. You know what to do.
