Detaining Americans

12/03/2011

Much hoo-hah and debate about Senate Bill 1867 this week, both in congress and on the talk circuits.

Former JAG attorney Charles Stimson is an expert on detention policy at the Heritage Foundation (www.heritage.org).

He’s followed by Jack Minor from the Greeley Gazette (www.greeleygazette.com) in Greeley, Colorado with an observation that proposed amendments to the bill are just making things worse.
