Dodd Urges Nuremberg Fairness For Detainees

Breaking News

Sen. Christopher J. Dodd today takes his crusade against the new system of trying terrorist suspects from his father's Senate desk to a conference commemorating the 60th anniversary of the Nuremberg trials - trials where, Dodd will say, "America's moral authority in the second half of the 20th century was born."

But nowadays, Dodd plans to tell the conference, "For 60 years, a single word has best captured America's moral authority and commitment to justice: Nuremberg."

The three-day event at Washington University in St. Louis, being held to review the legacy of the 1945-46 trials of major German war criminals, comes as President Bush prepares to sign landmark legislation creating a new system of justice for suspected terrorists and their allies.

Senator, though a politician, still commands respect. The law just passed by congress certainly does not reflect Nuremberg.
