SEPTEMBER 28, 2006 - Posted at 7:57 a.m. CDT

 

WASHINGTON - Arkansas Senators Blanche Lincoln and Mark Pryor say they will wait before deciding how to vote on a bill that would define how suspected terrorists are to be treated once they are in custody.

Lincoln and Pryor, both Democrats, say the bill has numerous amendments and its final form is not yet clear.

Both Democrats voted for an amendment that failed.  That measure by Senator Carl Levin, a Michigan Democrat, would have given terror defendants rights that include the ability to have evidence thrown out of it was coerced.
