URGENT: Tell the White House to Sign the Anti-Torture Bill

Posted by stoptorture on February 15th, 2008

***Call the White House at 202-456-1111, or email the President at comments@whitehouse.gov to express your support for H.R. 2082 (the Intelligence Authorization bill).***

 

***The law (H.R. 2082) would prohibit the CIA from using techniques not authorized in the Army Field Manual, which also specifically bans many torture techniques, including waterboarding, stress positions, use of dogs, and others.***

 

A message from the National Religious Campaign Against Torture:

TORTURE IS A MORAL ISSUE

 
To Supporters of the National Religious Campaign Against TortureDear Friends:

We have good news. Earlier this week, on a 51-46 vote, the Senate passed important anti-torture legislation that would prohibit all U.S. intelligence agencies, including the CIA, from engaging in torture or other so-called “harsh” interrogation techniques. This bill has already passed the House of Representatives and now it only needs the President’s signature to become law.

This is an enormous victory, and it is in part due to your efforts and the efforts of NRCAT. By emailing and calling your Senators, you made it clear to them that the American people expect Congress to take a clear stand against torture.

Unfortunately, however, the President has already said that he plans to veto the bill rather than sign it into law. If he does so, he will repudiate the will of both houses of Congress and of the American people. Worse, he will keep us an immoral and destructive path.

We ask you to call the White House at 202-456-1111, or to email the President at comments@whitehouse.gov to express your support for H.R. 2082 (the Intelligence Authorization bill). Tell the President that we cannot win the war on terror by abandoning the values that made us great, and that he can help return us to those values by signing H.R. 2082.

Sincerely,

Linda Gustitus, President, NRCAT
Richard Killmer, Executive Director, NRCAT

  5. Nibal from Catchy Subject Lines Tips Says:

    I do not know about you guys but for me the appearance of a blog is very important… I’d say almost as much as the post itself. On top of that I’m crazy about YouTube videos… or, as a matter of fact, ANY media content whatsoever.

    As such, anytime I find a similar write-up I only wish the particular OP embeds some internet video somehow.

    Nowadays, a large amount of writers definitely do not… Dunno why?…

    I suppose this may differ dependant upon the content… however I still believe that it would be suitable for practically any kind of content, because it would always be enjoyable to see a warm and friendly face or perhaps hear a voice at first visit.

    Anyway, I guess I’m a bit off topic with this?.. Exactly… It looks like that! He, He, He…

    Thanks a lot for enriching the Internet with this blog post!
