White Paper: Ending Torture, Rendition and Arbitrary Detention

This paper, released as part of our 100 Days white paper series, “Ending Arbitrary Detention, Torture and Extraordinary Rendition” presents a vision to President Obama that lays out the history of the systematic assault on the Constitution conducted by the Bush administration, and calls for swift action to end torture, extraordinary rendition and arbitrary detention, restore the rule of law, and hold those responsible for these abuses accountable for their illegal actions. This paper provides an overview of the development of the Bush administration's policies of torture, arbitrary detention and extraordinary rendition, and the struggle to end these policies, restore the Constitution, and obtain justice for their victims.
