US Senate Passes Detainee Interrogation Bill


President George W. Bush wins another one on dealing with terrorism as the Senate passes the “Detainee Interrogation Bill”, 65–34.


WASHINGTON – The Senate on Thursday endorsed President Bush’s plans to prosecute and interrogate terror suspects, all but sealing congressional approval for legislation that Republicans intend to use on the campaign trail to assert their toughness on terrorism.
