Detainee Task Force


The Constitution Project’s independent, bipartisan, blue-ribbon Task Force on Detainee Treatment examined the federal government’s policies and actions related to the capture, detention and prosecution of suspected terrorists in U.S. custody during the Clinton, Bush and Obama administrations. Created late in 2010, the goal of the Task Force was to provide the American people with a broad understanding of what is known—and what may still be unknown—about the past and current treatment of suspected terrorists detained by the U.S. government. The Task Force identified detention policies and practices that will help America to better comply with the nation’s legal obligations, foreign policy objectives and democratic values.
