Torture, war crimes, human trafficking — tough topics for a Wednesday morning during exam week at Georgetown University Law Center. But these are the issues Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.), incoming chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, wants to tackle in a new subcommittee on human rights. During an emphatic speech in Hart Auditorium on Dec. 13, Leahy explained the role of the subcommittee and outlined his goals for the 110th Congress, including greater congressional oversight, greater transparency in government, and a lot less spying on American citizens. Headed by Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), the new subcommittee will be the first of its kind under the Judiciary Committee to examine human rights issues and spearhead congressional efforts to end human rights abuses, both at home and abroad.
