"New Bush bill would legalize torture."

Marty Lederman writes that the bill President Bush sent to Congress today is “an attempt to authorize the CIA to engage in the sorts of ‘enhanced’ interrogation techniques — e.g., hypothermia, threats of violence to the detainee and his family, prolonged sleep deprivation, “stress positions” and waterboarding — …and to immunize such conduct from any judicial review.” (Via AS)
