Massive revolt underway against Bush on torture proposals
President Bush is facing a massive revolt against his unconscionable interrogation and torture proposals submitted to committees in the House and Senate. Members of the Senate, House, Judiciary, the CIA, and retired military expressed opposition to Bush, and in some cases refused to comply with Bush administration orders to violate the law. Faith leaders also expressed outrage that a debate even exists on the subject of torture in the U.S. and called for congressional action opposing Bush.
Here are some of the actions taking place against Bush's preposterous proposals to legalize human rights violations in opposition to international laws:
- Revolt against Bush torture proposals now underway in both Senate and House of Representatives
- CIA interrogators operating in secret jails refuse to act under illegal Bush administration orders
- The Imperial Presidency crushed by Supreme Court
- Five Ex-Chairmen of Joint Chiefs publicly declare opposition to Bush interrogation plan
- Faith leaders reject Bush torture bill as "an outrageous proposal" and call for congressional campaign against torture
- Retired judges: Bush is violating basic Constitutional rights
- Rebellion against Bush underway in Senate on tribunals
Even with all the legal and moral questions concerning torture and human rights violations, there are still a few mislead right-wing crackpots that insist on supporting Bush (many right-wing conservatives are now opposing Bush):
This is an important issue will be decided shortly and is an attempt by Bush to re-define what the U.S. is all about. Please write your representatives in Congress and Senate to let them know what you think.
