Stop Torture

The Harvard Anti-Torture Coalition

Urge Accountability


Dear Representative _______ and Senators ________ and ________:

I call upon you, my elected representatives, to appoint a special prosecutor to conduct a thorough, independent, and public investigation into the role of high-ranking U.S. officials in the abuse and torture of detainees in Guantánamo, Iraq, Afghanistan, and in secret detention facilities throughout the world.

I am deeply disturbed by evidence of the systematic use of torture and cruel, inhuman, and degrading treatment against detained persons in the name of the United States, including the outsourcing of torture to other countries. This pattern of abuse “resulted from decisions made by the Bush administration to bend, ignore and cast rules aside.” [1]

Involvement in war crimes must not remain unpunished, no matter what the perpetrator’s rank. Current and former top U.S. officials such as Donald Rumsfeld (former Sec. of Defense), Alberto Gonzalez (former U.S. Attorney General), George Tenet (former Director of the CIA), Porter Goss (former Director of the CIA), Michael Hayden (current Director of the CIA), and Steven Bradbury (acting head of the Office of Legal Counsel, Dep. of Justice), have remained unaccountable for their roles in these crimes. I demand accountability for all public officials, not only for those who actively participate in torture, but also for those who condone, instigate, order, or acquiesce to abuses of detainees.

    One of the best ways to produce a prefabricated building is to use technology and wood as the most common and abundant material in nature, as in the United States, Canada, Europe, Japan, China and other developed countries as a system. Stable and desirable has been considered. The creation of housing in this way for about 2 billion people in the world is proof of this claim.

    In fact, Shin Ki-jin’s background and academic affiliation were so good that he couldn’t even compare him to Yoon-seok.

    The corners of the mouth of Secretary-General Yang Baek-woo, who saw the insides clearly, rose as if sneering.

    “It is the bloodline of wings. Are you talking about your case, for example?”

  41. Yoon-seok Says:

    Was the jealousy gone too far?

    Is it because Yoon-seok, who is younger than his age, was so upset that he was winning and winning immediately after entering politics?

    After spitting out the words that should only be contained inside, aide Shin Ki-jin broke out in a sweat and set out to explain.

  42. Ki-jin Says:

    Shin Ki-jin, aide who struggles with not being able to answer.

    … … If I had made my argument stronger, I would have evaluated it differently. tt

  43. Yang Baek Says:

    Secretary-General Yang Baek-woo was too pathetic to see his embarassed aide. Waiting for more replies was obviously a waste of time, so I said in a dry tone.

    “You are yourself.”

    “Because you are responsible for all losses caused by mistakes or shortcomings.”
