Profile in Courage

I've written before about how the Supreme Court reversed course and granted certiorari in a case challenging the detention practices at Guantanamo.

Today the Times has a profile of Stephen Abraham, the lawyer and reserve army officer whose statement was crucial to that decision. As "a political conservative who says he cried when Richard M. Nixon resigned the presidency," it's quite likely that Abraham wouldn't fit in among readers here. Still, it's also clear that he is someone that the Bushies just can't understand: someone with principles that outweigh his political affiliation with the administration.
