Immediate Action Opportunity--Demand a Special Prosecutor on Torture
Please know that 911truth.org immediately endorsed the call for a Special Prosecutor, although David Swanson of AfterDowningStreet.org told me directly he thinks it would be "counterproductive" to list our organizational endorsement. No matter. Our hundreds of thousands of readers are bigger than Mr. Swanson's politically correct pettiness. Get on the phone, the computer or get to DC--DEMAND a prosecutor now. We can NOT allow torturers to walk around free in our name.
What to Ask Holder on Thursday?
April 21, 2009
Would you like to see the Attorney General asked about appointing a special prosecutor? Well he's testifying on Thursday afternoon before a subcommittee of the House Appropriations Committee, and the subcommittee members all have phone numbers. A coalition of groups will be taking the occasion to deliver over a quarter million petition signatures to Eric Holder asking for a special prosecutor. The hearing will be webcast on the committee website: http://appropriations.house.gov
If you want to attend in person in Washington, D.C., it's on Thursday at 2:30 p.m. in Rayburn 2359, a hearing of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, and Science.
After Downing Street, Democrats.com, ACLU, FireDogLake, the Center for Constitutional Rights, Moveon.org and others will deliver petitions to Holder asking for a special prosecutor. Sign here quick to have your name included! http://democrats.com/special-prosecutor-for-bush-war-crimes
Once you've signed the petition, please go here for the contact info of the subcommittee members: http://afterdowningstreet.org/node/41886
Phone as many of them as you have time to right now, and ask them to please ask the attorney general to appoint a special prosecutor. He has said that water boarding is torture. Top officials have authorized and sought to give pseudo-legal cover for water boarding. Our laws ban it, and the Convention Against Torture requires that we prosecute it.
