Torture

In view of the problems which had threatened to derail the confirmation of Michael Mukasey as Attorney General [He was confirmed last week and sworn in on Friday], it is of introduce that the issue of torture is still worrying members of Congress.

On Thursday, November 15, 2007 at 3:00 p.m. (8pm UK time) The House Committee on Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on International Organizations, Human Rights, and Oversight will hold a Hearing: “Diplomatic Assurances” on Torture: A Case Study of Why Some Are Accepted and Others Rejected

Bill Delahunt will chair this sub-committee meeting. I'm not sure whether it will be webcast - but if it is it will be available at http://foreignaffairs.house.gov/index.asp?subnav=close
