This is so terribly wrong. This is justification to charge this President with a crime and put him in prison. The people that have authorized this and also the people that carry it out, from the President, to the most junior CIA agent, are committing capital crimes. It was in the news today. A Canadian was taken and imprisoned, brought to Jordan, held, and taken to Syria, where he was held for ten months. While in Syria, he was whipped with metal cables. Is this the kind of treatment that President Bush wants to abrogate the Geneva Convention for? Is this the "compassionate conservative" that promised to be a uniter? The only thing he is uniting, are the other countries of the world... against the United States.
This story is in the NY Times today. Read it if you care about this country. Do something if you want to live in a free and moral nation. We are way past the time for politics. We need a Special Prosecutor and we needed him yesterday. The nation MUST act quickly to remove this entire administration from office and set up an interim government and hold special elections. This is a moral crisis that we must act on; our very freedom depends on it. I am no raving maniac. I spent a career in the military serving my country. Even the Army tells its soldiers to refuse an unlawful order and report the person who gave that order. That's what I'm doing now. It is the only thing I can do. I am reporting the President to his superiors, and that my fellow citizen's is you. I'm not proud to be an American right now, at this moment. The only way that can bring the change that is needed to make us proud to be Americans again, is to stop the criminal actions of our leaders. Who has the responsibility for that? The American people. WE ARE RESPONSIBLE.
