Sample Letter Regarding Investing the Bush Administration - FROM MY EMAIL

"Subject: Tell Holder: Don't exempt Cheney from torture probe.

Dear Friend,

Newsweek reported Saturday that Attorney General Eric Holder is considering appointing a prosecutor to investigate whether the Bush administration illegally tortured terrorism suspects.

You can find a link to that article here:

A decision is expected in the next few weeks. Holder should investigate torture, and he should start with former Vice President Dick Cheney and his legal adviser David Addington.

I just signed a petition to tell Attorney General Holder to assign a prosecutor to investigate torture. I hope you will, too. Please have a look and take action."

Beginning of Petition at

"Attorney General Holder, it is your duty to uphold the constitution and protect the rule of law. The evidence before you demands that you launch an investigation into possible crimes committed under the Bush administration and to prosecute if warranted. This investigation must not be limited to low-level foot soldiers, but should seek justice at the highest levels. Assign a prosecutor to investigate torture and do not rule out as targets architects of the Bush administration's torture program including former Vice President Dick Cheney and his legal adviser David Addington."


My Addition (You can add your own comments to the stock petition (above), as well):

"The most important people to go after is the architects - Cheney, Bush (?), et. al... (?) The others were apparently (and they should be suitably held accountable at their level) "following orders." The torture that apparently occurred - especially (as I have heard about it) the waterboarding - is no more consciousable and just than the witch drownings and burnings in earlier centuries! Torture is as apt - besides being inhumane and a violation of the Geneva Convention and all that is moral - to bring forth false confessions as it is any glimmer of truth! If you do not hold the folks accountable for these atrocious actions (and other violations, in my opinion, of the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights)... the people (including myself, a big Obama Administration fan!) are eventually going to lose faith in this administration as well...

You can't expect the people to be dignified and righteous - KIND and RESPECTFUL towards one another - if our countries leaders cannot even compose themselves in such a way - and/or are allowed to walk away from situations such as this with a smirk or a smile on their face - millions to billions in the bank - and millions likely pending in books deals that will most likely cast them in the best light (iyiyiyiyiyi...) possible...

Mr. Holder, I might not be saying this in the best manner - but it needs to be said. Accountability has to start at the top - and America's clock appears to be ticking...

The people need strong leaders with good ethics...

The people need to see justice done!

My apologies if anything written here is offensive to you. My heart, as always, is (I believe) in the right place.

With much respect,
