Obama on Torture Photos... You Tube... Investigate Cheney... Activism - If You So Choose - Link

["Obama: Photos Not "Sensational," Would "Inflame Anti-America"; as submitted by tpmtv on May 13, 2009;]

"The news is buzzing that Dick Cheney would welcome a commission to investigate Bush-era torture - but we need to make it clear that a mere investigation is not enough. What we need is a prosecution.

The buzz intensifed on May 10, when Cheney told CBS' Bob Schieffer that he hopes for a public discussion of the CIA memos on torture - or, as he refers to it, "enhanced interrogation techniques."

Only after a thorough investigation by a U.S. attorney will we know for sure whether and to what extent Cheney broke the law and besmirched the Constitution while serving in the Bush administration. And if he did break the law, he deserves to be prosecuted and sent to prison..."


"I just took action to tell Attorney General Holder to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate Cheney and -- pending the outcome of that investigation -- to prosecute him to the fullest extent of the law. I hope you will, too.

Please have a look and take action... [Copy and Paste in Address Bar]
