Democrats push prisoner abuse probe
Leading GOP senator dismisses call for 9/11-style commission

Monday, November 7, 2005; Posted: 11:24 p.m. EST (04:24 GMT)

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Senate Democrats stepped up their attacks on the Bush administration's handling of the war on terrorism and the war in Iraq with calls Monday for an independent probe into the treatment of prisoners in U.S. custody.

Republicans fired back, accusing Democrats of trying to score political points off American losses in Iraq and of undermining support for U.S. troops.

Leading Senate Democrats, arguing that the chamber's GOP leadership has not pursued investigations on those matters, said they would push to establish a panel similar to the independent commission that investigated the al Qaeda attacks of September 11, 2001.

"We need the support of people around the world in our war on terrorism," said Sen. Carl Levin of Michigan, the ranking Democrat on the Armed Services Committee.
