Senate rejects effort to strip detainee provision

The vote was 61-37 against the measure on Tuesday. Democratic Sen. Mark Udall had offered the amendment to take out the provisions and instead allow the Intelligence, Judiciary and Armed Services committees to hold hearings with Pentagon and administration officials on the issue.

15. Not Reid of Nevada, but Reed of Rhode Island.
I don't know anything about Reed.
