  •  Udall's amendment... (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    ...was to strip aspects of the bill while the senate held hearings...I think he specifically referred to Section 1031.

    Here's a link to Lawfare which provides links to Udall's amendment, his statement as to why he proposed it, and the blog's author's anaylsis.

    As for the Feinstein amendment, it dealth with Section 1032 and adding the word 'abroad' to the language of the section.  It is explained thusly by the ACLU:

    Senator Dianne Feinstein has offered an amendment that would add the word “abroad” to section 1032 of the bill. The result would be that the mandatory military detention requirement in section 1032 would apply only when a suspect is captured abroad. While persons taken into custody in the United States could still be put into military custody under section 1031 of the bill (which pares back on the protections provided by the Posse Comitatus Act), the military would not be REQUIRED to put such person into military custody.

    I'm trying to find a link to the actual wording of the amendment.
