20. $4 million of private taxpayer money helped push this political and legal process to this by-large
victory. Kudos to the Obama/Holder DOJ for respecting at last the rule of law that the Bush Regime so thoroughly trashed and wiped their butts with at every juncture.

An immense Kudos to the ACLU and the American citizens who helped pressure and push the cause by putting their money where their mouths were. Liberals and Progressives. Unless any here are deluded enough to believe that was $4 million of Republican and Conservadem money.

Nevertheless, it is an important victory for those held and denied their rights all these many years, one for Pres Obama, one for everyone.

Now, to work on the aspects of the multi-tiered justice system, which still appear to exist.

ACLU Blog of Rights

The work goes on.
