Meanwhile, I started to actually clean up the article with respect to
sourcing. Is it me or are our American political biographies just
totally awful? I removed a paragraph saying
On September 28, 2006, Craig voted to suspend [[habeas corpus]]
provisions for anyone deemed by the Executive Branch an "unlawful
combatant," barring them from challenging their detentions in court.
Craig's vote gave a retroactive, nine-year immunity to U.S. officials
who authorized, ordered, or committed acts of torture and abuse,
permitting the use of statements obtained through torture to be used
in military tribunals so long as the abuse took place by December 30,
2005. Craig authorized the President to establish permissible
interrogation techniques and to "interpret the meaning and
application" of international [[Geneva Convention]] standards, so long
as the coercion fell short of serious bodily or psychological injury.
And someone is actually trying to defend this garbage on the talk
page! Also HE VOTED AGAINST CUDDLY ANIMALS.
