The Congressional Research Service has updated its report, Treatment of Battlefield Detainees in the War on Terrorism, which is available to the University of Colorado at Boulder through GalleryWatch.com. This report summarizes the background of this controversy and describes the Law of War in regard prisoners of war and civilian detainees. There is a section describing the treatment of detainees at Guantanamo. The final section of the report describes recent bills introduced in Congress as a result of recent reports on this issue.
