Who won the interrogation controversy?

Byron York says both sides did. (Republican sides, that is)

"Who won? Before the final deal came out, there had been speculation that the White House had “blinked” in the much-hyped confrontation. By the end, though, representatives of both sides professed satisfaction. “I think there is every reason for both sides to be happy,” the source says. “This was a situation where both the Congress and the administration shared a common objective,” Hadley told reporters afterward. “And what we did in a fairly creative way was come up with ways that we could all support to achieve that objective.”

UPDATE: Patrick Hynes at Anklebiting pundits has a bit to say on the subject and he is not happy with conservatives acting like Kossacks when it comes to McCain.
