Hello Friends,

 

I write to you today to beg you to help restore the writ of habeas corpus to American law, and to bar the use of information gleaned through torture.

Sen. Chris Dodd (D. CT) is sponsoring a bill called the Restoring the Constitution Act (RCA), and he is asking for citizen co-sponsors. The RCA would, in the words of Sen. Dodd, ensure "that suspected terrorists will be treated consistent with norms of our national law and the Geneva Conventions, to which we remain a signatory, [so that] we can protect our national security while upholding the international credibility so critical to securing America."

Please my friends, please, regardless of your political beliefs, I beg you to help your nation and yourself by helping restore the writ of habeas corpus and prevent American torture of prisoners.

 

 

Sen. Dodd has written a blog for Huffington Post in which he explains his position, gives a bit of history to put this situation in context, and asks citizens to co-sponsor the Restoring the Constitution Act. His blog is very short, it would take you less than five minutes to read it:
