Amnesty Petition

/ 19 January 2006

There are moments these days when I can hardly bear to even listen to the news via NPR (I gave up on television news quite a while ago). Yesterday there was a vivid story detailing the court martial of a soldier accused of torturing an Iraqi to death. This is clearly not an aberration, as there is multiple evidence of similar cases. I’ve written about them in here before, and the BodyandSoul weblog does a particularly excellent job of connecting the dots. Today I’m urging everyone who can, to sign the Amnesty International petition urging President Bush to “tell the truth about torture.”
