White House Counsel Greg Craig went to Capitol Hill today to brief members of Congress about the three executive orders President Obama will sign tomorrow.
According to a former Hill aide, the orders will:
∙ close the detainee camp at Guantanamo Bay within a year and establish a process by which the U.S. government figures out what to do with the remaining detainees;
∙ establish new rules on interrogation methods moving forward;
∙ establish new guidelines for the treatment of detainees moving forward.
