Apparently, the House of Representatives Wants Educated Torturers

Last night, the US House defeated the McGovern Amendment to cut funding to the School of the Americas.
That's the bad news.
The good news is that the vote was 209 in favor and 214 against.
So it's Thanksgiving at the gates of Fort Benning once again this year!
Update: Over at Levellers, Michael Westmoreland-White has an excellent post about the vote, complete with a link to the rollcall. Take a look. Contact your representative.
