Tell Your Senators To Vote Against Torture

February 12, 2008 at 3:18 pm (injustice, politics) (, )

My US compatriots: tell your Senators in Washington to vote against torture. From the email I got from Amnesty International:

Even as the Senate prepares for a crucial vote restricting the CIA and other U.S. agents from using waterboarding and other unlawful techniques, the Pentagon is moving forward with torture-tainted show trials for six detainees at Guantánamo Bay suspected of conspiring in the September 11 attacks.

The Senate vote could come as soon as Thursday. Tell the Senate that torture is intolerable and that it undermines justice at every turn.

The heinous attacks on September 11, 2001 were crimes against humanity. Anyone involved must be brought to justice. But, the truth is, the U.S. government has — at every turn –undermined the opportunity for justice for the victims of those attacks.

They did it by first disappearing the suspects into secret CIA prisons, torturing “high value” suspects for information and then passing off that information as “evidence.” Unconscionably, they have shifted the spotlight from justice for the victims of the September 11 attacks to the illegal behavior of the United States.

You can also give them a call, which tends to make a bigger impact.

    They don’t care. Never have. It’s the people that have to do the torturing that have to worry about being made the fall guys for the real bosses in this country. Hell, in the world.

    Can’t people get it the real deal, anymore? Has all the race brainwashing completely blinded everyone to the real agenda? That’s right, and it’s time for everyone to reevaluate their entire world view — before it’s too late! This has all been a part of the same agenda to 9/11. Always has been, folks. Wait till they pass S-1959 and have the means to label you a terrorist if you say anything against them.

    Everything that people have been saying all down the years is becoming crystal clear. Everyone called them crackpots and anti-Semites, but it looks like the joke has been on us!
