Restoring the Constitution Act

25 03 2007

Senator Leahy does it again! He has introduced the “Restoring the Constitution Act of 2007” to right the wrongs of the Bush Administration and the Republican Congress.

You can read about it •at Senator Leahy’s website.•

An excerpt:

WASHINGTON (Monday, Feb. 12) — Senator Chris Dodd (D-CT) today reintroduced his bill making important changes to the Military Commissions Act of 2006, which in its current form, does not provide a credible process for bringing suspected terrorists to justice. Sen. Dodd first introduced his bill last Congress and after working with human rights groups and experts in military law, Sen. Dodd was joined by Senators Robert Menendez (D-NJ), Patrick Leahy (D-VT) and Russ Feingold (D-WI) introducing the measure again in the 110th Congress.

The “Restoring the Constitution Act of 2007” restores Habeas Corpus rights, bars evidence gained through torture or coercion and reinstates U.S. adherence to the Geneva Conventions in order to protect the nation’s military personnel abroad.

Naturally we all should support this act!
