Quote of the day week (at least!)

"I would have no problems with describing this practice [waterboarding] as falling under the prohibition of torture...There are several precedents worldwide of states exercising their universal jurisdiction...to enforce the torture convention and we can only hope that we will see more and more of these avenues of redress."

- U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights, Louise Arbour
We can only hope indeed!
