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)
