Torture, Gitmo, and the Treatment of Detainees: President Obama's Three Executive Orders for Thursday

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.
