Sen. Dodd/Sen.Menendez Introduce Bill Restoring Habeas Corpus

   Senator John Dodd is introducing a bill to restore the writ of Habeas Corpus that the Bush Crime Family has taken away not only from prisoners of war but from the citizens of the United States as well.

   The bill is being co-sponsored by Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ) who originally voted to allow Bush to suspend our rights under Habeas Corpus.

   At least Menendez is trying to fix his mess-up which cannot be said about to many politicians.

Sen. John Dodd (D-CT)

On Tuesday, February 13th, I plan on re-introducing the Restoring the Constitution Act of 2007. The bill will restore Habeas Corpus protections to detainees, bar information acquired through torture from being introduced as evidence in trials, and limit presidential authority to interpret the meaning and application of the Geneva Conventions. Check back here tomorrow for the full text of the bill and a detailed explanation of what it does.
