Terror Detainee and Defense Program Policies C-Span
Various Senators spoke on an amendment offered by Senator Mark Udall (D-CO) to S. 1867, a bill dealing with Defense programs and policy, including terror detainee policy. Senator Udall’s amendment would have stricken language from the bill allowing for indefinite detention of some terrorism suspects. The amendment failed by a vote of 37-61.
National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 (Engrossed in Senate [Passed Senate] – ES) I stand by what I said in the
post I did about C-Span and our elected officials once again. As important as this bill is to The Citizens of the United States of America. Once again it doesn’t seem like there are that many elected officials present. I wonder how many voted without reading this bill? shera~
