Detainee Treatment Act of 2005

The phrase "Detainee Treatment Act of 2005", used solely (as far as Issuepedia has been able to determine) in the text of the Military Commissions Act of 2006 (MCA 2006), apparently refers to what Wikipedia calls the McCain Detainee Amendment – which was ultimately expressed as the Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 2006 (DoDAA 2006).

The determination that this is the correct meaning of the phrase is confirmed by the fact that the subject matter of Section 1004 of the DoDAA 2006 matches up with the context in which it is discussed in the text of the MCA 2006.
