Yesterday, Sens. Chris Dodd (D-CT) and Patrick Leahy (D-VT) reintroduced the Habeas Corpus Restoration Act as an amendment to a defense authorization bill, restoring the right of habeas corpus to detainees charged as “enemy combatants.” Firedoglake notes that Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has already threatened to filibuster the bill. Call your senators (information HERE) urge them to support the legislation.

UPDATE: OpenLeft has more.
