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.
