Special Prosecutor for Bush War Crimes

1 post in this topic

We're into our second week of President Obama's new

administration and are already seeing signs of change.

Yet many activists want to make sure we as a nation

don't forget the possible crimes committed under the

last administration in the name of the "war on terror."

That's why we're sharing with you this action alert

from our friends at Democrats.com. Sign their petition

to call on our new Attorney General Eric Holder to

appoint a special prosecutor to investigate and

prosecute any and all government officials who have

participated in torture and other war crimes:

----------------------------------------------

Now is our time to pursue truth and justice. Please

join us in calling on Attorney General Eric Holder to

appoint a Special Prosecutor to investigate and

prosecute any and all government officials who have

participated in torture and other war crimes.

In the final days of their administration, President

Bush and Vice President Cheney admitted they authorized

"enhanced interrogation" of prisoners, specifically

including waterboarding. But "enhanced interrogation"

is simply a euphemism for torture, which was so severe

that it caused the deaths of at least 70 prisoners.

Please sign our petition calling for a Special

Prosecutor now: http://www.care2.com/go/z/e/AE2M0/YR4X/ANR12

As Major General Antonio Taguba, the Army general who

led the investigation into prisoner abuse at Iraq's Abu

Ghraib prison has stated:

"After years of disclosures by government

investigations, media accounts and reports from human

rights organizations, there is no longer any doubt as

to whether the current administration has committed war

crimes. The only question that remains to be answered

is whether those who ordered the use of torture will be

held to account."

The United States is a representative democracy. The

actions of our government officials are done in the

name of its citizens. We are outraged that torture been

committed in our name. Join us in urging Attorney

General Holder to appoint a Special Prosecutor to

prosecute those responsible for torture to the fullest

extent of the law: http://www.care2.com/go/z/e/AE2M0/YR4X/ANR12

Thanks for everything you do.

Bob Fertik, President
