THEY'RE GOING TO TRY TO EXEMPT THE CIA FROM THE TORTURE PROHIBITION
By People's Email Network
That's right. There are evil forces still working behind the scenes to try to cut the heart out of the anti-torture provision, which was passed 90-9 by the Senate, in the conference on the defense bill with the House. What part of NO TORTURE don't they get? They want to cut the CIA a blanket "get out of atrocity free" card, in actual effect, by omission, to AUTHORIZE torture by its worst offenders. Please contact all your members of the House and Senate at once and tell them this attempt to subvert the will of the people is a further outrage!
The fingerprints of shadowy "security agency" operatives are all over Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo, extraordinary rendition, and all the other reprehensible conduct that the overwhelmingly supported McCain amendment was passed to address. And the worst culprits must NOT be allowed to escape the reach of its intent. In particular, leading the charge on the conference committee will be three of the only nine senators who voted FOR more torture, Ted Stevens (AK), Thad Cochran (MS) and Kit Bond (MO), so if you are from any of these states, your voices and those of all your friends are especially needed now.
STOP HARRIET MIERS FROM CROWNING BUSH AS KING
This is all the more reason to oppose the appointment of Harriet Miers, who they want to install as yet another rubberstamp crony for the Bush imperial power grab. So greedy is the right wing for absolute power in every respect they want, there are some reactionary commentators who are complaining that they have not been assured that Miers is radical enough for them. This is our nomination to stop, and then we can move on to the REAL struggle which is to fight for a true moderate as the next appointee. Click on the link below also and you can submit both action pages with the same contact information.
STOP MIERS IN HER TRACKS at http://www.nocrony.com
We can take no satisfaction with someone just because they don't fulfill EVERYTHING on the wish list of the other side. We must stand up for what WE want and believe. Most of all we must build a national consensus that any new Supreme Court appointees must be true moderates at the worst. We can TAKE ADVANTAGE of the silly opposition of the neocon think tankers who are so intellectually greedy they will not settle for another clone vote like Thomas. Let them hold out for an "in our face" reactionary scholar. In the meantime we must all speak out on the absent merits of Miers and reject her OURSELVES as nothing more than a faith-based crony.
