Important week ahead

By Jason Ralph

The New York Times reports today a change in Pentagon policy on detention.  It will now be “notifying the International Committee of the Red Cross of the identities of militants who were being held in secret at a camp in Iraq and another in Afghanistan”.  Also of interest in this report is the fact that alerts us to an important week in the life of the project.  A 2004 CIA report on its interrogation policy is set to be released and Attorney General Eric Holder is to decide “whether to appoint a criminal prosecutor to investigate the interrogations of suspects accused of being involved in terrorism after the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.”  There will no doubt be a lot of dicussion in the blogosphere.
