Enter a dissenter

From NBC's Mike Viqueira
Rep. Ed Markey (D) of Massachusetts is not a fan of the compromise reached by Republicans on the treatment and trial of detainees. Markey calls it "legal mumbo jumbo" designed to "obscure the fact that the CIA will continue to be allowed to use torture..." As best we can tell, Markey is the first Democratic member to publicly state his opposition to the deal. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's initial reaction to the deal was positive and, at this writing, there's no reason to think the deal is in trouble.
