President Bush will sign the Military Commissions Act of 2006 (MCA) on Tuesday. The administration claims that this law provides clear authorization for the CIA to conduct so-called ‘enhanced’ interrogations. Credible media reports say these include waterboarding, extreme cold and sleep deprivation and prolonged stress positions. However, Republicans in both Houses said these techniques are “clearly prohibited” by the new law.
