Videotaping Detainee Interrogations
On Agreeing to the Amendment
House Roll Call No. 362
110th Congress, 2nd Session

Agreed to: 218-192 (see complete tally)
On May 23, 2008, the House passed, by a vote of 218-192, an anti-torture amendment to the Duncan Hunter National Defense Authorization Act (H.R. 5658) that would require the recording and retention of videos of interrogations of persons under the control of the Department of Defense, or being held at Defense Department facilities. The amendment would bring interrogations into line with recommended best practices for both military and law enforcement interrogations increasing accountability for compliance with the McCain Anti-Torture Amendment and other anti-torture laws and treaties. The ACLU supported the Holt/Tauscher/Grijalva/Schakowsky Amendment because it took important steps to return accountability and the rule of law to the federal government's interrogation and detention policies.
