Bush Administration opposes ban on "cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment" of detainees

This week, it will be reported internationally that the Bush administration has threatened to veto a Senate bill for $442 billion in next year's defense programs if it tries to regulate the Pentagon's treatment of detainees or sets up a commission to investigate operations at US operated military prisons.

The move came after at least 10 Republican Senators called for legislation that would block the US military from engaging in "cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment" of detainees, including using interrogation methods not authorized by a new Army field manual, nor by the Geneva Conventions.
