Cafferty Blasts Detainee Bill

The House of Representatives voted 253-168 today to enact a bill governing military tribunals for suspected terrorists and treatment of detainees. The Senate is expected to vote tomorrow, following debate on five amendments to be offered to the bill. Among many other problems, the bill would retroactively amend the War Crimes Act so that some acts of torture committed since 1997 that are illegal under the old law would be effectively pardoned. Jack Cafferty comments.
