WASHINGTON, Sept. 28 — The Senate today rejected an amendment to a bill creating a new system for interrogating and trying terror suspects that would have guaranteed such suspects access to the courts to challenge their imprisonment.


The vote was 51 to 48 against the amendment, which was offered by the Republican and Democratic leaders of the Judiciary Committee, Senator Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania and Senator Patrick J. Leahy of Vermont. The action set the stage for final passage of the bill, which was approved on Wednesday by the House of Representatives.


The bill’s ultimate passage was assured on Wednesday when Democrats agreed to forgo a filibuster in return for consideration of the amendment.

Democrats are such total bitch-ass slimeballs. I can't believe that 12 Democrats voted for this stinkbomb. They can't all be up for reelection! What the hell is going on here?

Well you have a great point. But what do we do? Give it right back to the pukes? I think we should give it to the dems and see if they impeach bush. If they don't it will be time to create a thrid party demand public financing. The dem house needs to be cleand the repukes need to be kicked out of washington!
