Tell Obama not to hide torture details

Dear Fred,

We just received this email alert from the National Religious Campaign Against Torture and wholly endorse the effort.  So we wanted to forward it along to you.  We believe that it will be helpful to call either TODAY or TOMORROW.  We hope that you will…

Dear Friends:

The Wall Street Journal is reporting today that the Obama White House might continue the Bush Administration policy of concealing key details about the CIA’s use of torture.  Please call President Obama immediately to tell him that he should not act to conceal our country’s use of torture!

On Thursday, the Obama White House is expected to release a series of three 2005 legal memos that authorized the use of torture as an interrogation technique.  These memos are crucial in order to understand exactly what torture techniques were used and how they were approved.  The Wall Street Journal is reporting that these memos may be released in a redacted form – that parts of the memos may not be made public.  

This is unacceptable!  Our nation’s use of torture cannot remain hidden.  The American people need to know exactly what was done, how it was approved, and how it can be prevented in the future.  

Please call President Obama TODAY at 202-456-1111, and tell his staff that you think that the legal memos authorizing the use of torture should be released in their full, unredacted form.  Tell President Obama that you expect him to put an end to Bush Administration secrecy.

Thank you for your help.

Rev. Richard Killmer
Executive Director
