Lederman on Amending the War Crimes Act
Law Prof and Balkinization blogger Marty Lederman, currently visiting at Georgetown Law, has been kind enough to share information about the draft text of the Bush Administration amendment to the War Crimes Act. Slate has published a version of the closely guarded draft which Lederman analyzes in detail at The CIA Cruelty Authorization Act of 2006.
And please don't miss Professor Lederman's compilation of Balkinization blog posts on this very important topic: The Anti-Torture Memos: Balkinization Posts on Torture, Interrogation, Detention, War Powers, Executive Authority, and OLC.
See our early post on the legislative history of the War Crimes Act as amended, The Law of the Land (Still) Includes the War Crimes Act, now updated in the comment section with a link to the above-mentioned draft amendment published in Slate. [JH]
