From the Washington Post: "President Bush this morning proudly signed into law a bill that critics consider one of the most un-American in the nation's long history.
The new law vaguely bans torture -- but makes the administration the arbiter of what is torture and what isn't. It allows the president to imprison indefinitely anyone he decides falls under a wide-ranging new definition of unlawful combatant. It suspends the Great Writ of habeas corpus for detainees. It allows coerced testimony at trial. It immunizes retroactively interrogators who may have engaged in torture."Idaho has two repubilcan senators who both voted yea.Both washington state and california have two democratic senators, all four voted nea. The Republican senator Chaffe from Rhode Island is the one descenting republican.
