The Senate Judiciary Committee's Other Business on Tuesday: Military Tribunals

The Senate Judiciary Committee will vote on Judge Sotomayor's nomination tomorrow at 10:00 am (EDT).  But later in the day, at 2:30, the Subcommittee on Terrorism and Homeland Security will hold a hearing titled "Prosecuting Terrorists: Civilian and Military Trials for GTMO and Beyond."  Click here for details and a link to the live web-cast.

The hearing comes in the shadow of the government's mishandling and delays in the Jawad case and the Obama administration's efforts to revamp its methods of dealing with detainees.
