Prosecute War Crimes

DDpetitionbadgeredDear Attorney General Eric Holder,

We the undersigned citizens of the United States petition you to appoint a Special Prosecutor to investigate and prosecute any and all government officials who have participated in torture and other war crimes.

These crimes are being euphemistically referred to as “abusive interrogation techniques” by such respected figures as Senator John McCain. These are euphemisms for torture. Torture is a war crime. Waterboarding is a war crime. The CIA has admitted waterboarding detainees. Former Vice President Cheney brazenly admitted authorizing the program that led to waterboarding, other forms of torture too numerous to list, and ultimately, the deaths by homicide of detainees.

I have just read and signed the petition: “Special Prosecutor for Bush War Crimes”

Please take a moment to read about this important issue, and join me in signing the petition. My name was the 50,438th on the petition and Democrats.com is trying to reach 100,000 signatures.

Once you have signed, please consider asking other friends and family members to sign as well.

Thank you for your support!

In The Mean Time

Like many of you, I have just returned to my usual work routine after a four day holiday weekend. I feel like a slug! I do hope to resume my regular (controversial) blogging soon, however. Consider yourself warned. Mwahahahaha…

In the mean time, if after hearing Alan Shore On Scientology, you weren’t thoroughly convinced that Alan is the bees knees, watch him render Judge Marianna Folger speechless with a brilliant rant about Guantánamo.

Update: This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation

If you’re still not convinced, and you have ten minutes to spare, watch Alan argue before the U.S. Supreme Court about the death penalty in the case of Kennedy vs. Louisiana. Of course, there were a few other things Alan thought the Justices needed to hear, and he didn’t squander the opportunity.

My hero!

Now, don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten that Boston Legal is a television drama and Alan Shore is a fictional character. Just don’t mention it again, please.
