Dodd to Introduce ‘Restoring the Constitution Act’
Tomorrow, February 13, Senator Chris Dodd will be introducing the Restoring the Constitution Act of 2007. The text of the bill hasn’t been released yet, but purports to:
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.
All of these are laudable goals. However, it remains to be seen what, if anything, the bill will actually do to accomplish them. Stay tuned.
