TODAY'S DEMOCRACY NOW!:

* łA Total Rollback Of Everything This Country Has Stood For˛: Sen. Patrick
Leahy Blasts Congressional Approval of Detainee Bill *

The Senate has agreed to give President Bush extraordinary power to detain
and try prisoners in the so-called war on terror. The legislation strips
detainees of the right to challenge their own detention and gives the
President the power to detain them indefinitely. The bill also immunizes
U.S. officials from prosecution for torturing detainees who the military and
the CIA captured before the end of last year. We get reaction from Senator
Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) and Michael Ratner of the Center for Constitutional
Rights.
