    by the public safety exception.

    It is a brief period of time when investigators can ASK questions, and have the answers admissible in court.

    It does not remove any rights. It does not authorise rendition. It does not replace US Laws on torture.

    Even without the rights being read, any person still has those rights and is entitled to remain silent.

    I hope that the quality of debate will improve,
    but I fear we will remain Democrats.

      This doesn't seem to have been defined.  We know it's at least 50 minutes.  But could it be two days?  A week? A year? Ten years?
