Military Commissions Act of 2006: Background and Proposed Amendments
Jennifer K. Elsea (au)
In Nov. 2001, Pres. Bush issued a Mil. Order (MO) authorizing trial by mil. commission (MC) of certain non-citizens suspected of participating in the war against terrorism. The Supreme Court struck down MC established pursuant to the MO. To permit MC to go forward, Congress approved the MC Act of 2006 (MCA). After taking office, Pres. Obama took action to suspend the operation of MC pending a review of all Guantanamo detentions for the purpose of assessing options for the lawful disposition of each detainee. This report provides a background and analysis of MC rules under the MCA. It reviews the history of the implementation of MC in the “global war on terrorism” and provides an overview of the procedural safeguards provided in the MCA.
