Waterboarding now illegal again in the US

The acting head of the Justice Department's Office of Legal Counsel, Steven Bradbury, has reportedly said waterboarding is no longer allowed under US law. This is the same Steven Bradbury who in 2005 secretly authorised the CIA to engage in waterboarding of terrorist suspects.

Democratic senators have been opposing president Bush's attempts to have Mr Bradbury confirmed in his post.
