Republicans in house committee vote down torture investigation

Today the vote on three resolutions seeking information about Administration torture policies will be reported. The resolutions demanded
  • Information on a practice that has been called extraordinary rendition, or sending suspects abroad to countries where they would allegedly be tortured for information.
  • Documents about U.S. policies regarding U.N. anti-torture conventions.
  • Documents and records involving Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice's December trip to Europe, during which she was dogged by reports of alleged secret European jails.
It will be defeated by the Republican Party on almost straight party lines.
