The good news is that SPC Graner, of Abu Ghraib infamy, has been convicted, busted to E-1 and sentenced to ten years and a dishonorable discharge.

The bad news is that the current Administration is still spinning Abu Ghraib as "a few bad apples" and an aberration. (The fact that Abu Ghraib happened at all is still bad, but is no longer "news".)

The sort-of-good news is that not everybody is buying the "few bad apples" line. The BBC's headline for the story, for instance, is Iraq prison abuse 'leader' jailed (their quotation marks, not mine).
