We are excited to announce the launch of the Center for Constitutional Rights' (CCR) new online campaign calling for accountability and criminal prosecutions of those Bush administration officials responsible for torture and war crimes.
 
From George W. Bush himself to Vice President Dick Cheney, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, as well as other top-ranking former administration officials, those who ordered and planned torture and war crimes must be held accountable. Take a few moments to sign an online petition calling for just that.
 
The campaign also calls upon Senator Patrick Leahy, who
will hold a hearing of the Senate Judiciary Committee on March 4, 2009 to discuss a "truth commission" that would investigate the crimes of the Bush administration and support prosecutions for those government officials who violated the law. Sign a letter to Sen. Leahy and the Judiciary Committee calling for them to support prosecutions and to oppose any immunity for these architects of torture programs.
 
This campaign is part of CCR's broader 100 Days campaign, that calls for immediate action by President Obama and the new administration to end the abuses of prior administrations and restore the Constitution.
 
A full investigation and consequent prosecutions are necessary to put an end once and for all to dangerous and illegal actions by the government - and for those wronged to see justice served. Join us and make your voice heard in saying that achieving justice and accountability must begin within the first 100 Days of the new administration.
