Urge Accountability


Dear Representative _______ and Senators ________ and ________:

I call upon you, my elected representatives, to appoint a special prosecutor to conduct a thorough, independent, and public investigation into the role of high-ranking U.S. officials in the abuse and torture of detainees in Guantánamo, Iraq, Afghanistan, and in secret detention facilities throughout the world.

I am deeply disturbed by evidence of the systematic use of torture and cruel, inhuman, and degrading treatment against detained persons in the name of the United States, including the outsourcing of torture to other countries. This pattern of abuse “resulted from decisions made by the Bush administration to bend, ignore and cast rules aside.” [1]

Involvement in war crimes must not remain unpunished, no matter what the perpetrator’s rank. Current and former top U.S. officials such as Donald Rumsfeld (former Sec. of Defense), Alberto Gonzalez (former U.S. Attorney General), George Tenet (former Director of the CIA), Porter Goss (former Director of the CIA), Michael Hayden (current Director of the CIA), and Steven Bradbury (acting head of the Office of Legal Counsel, Dep. of Justice), have remained unaccountable for their roles in these crimes. I demand accountability for all public officials, not only for those who actively participate in torture, but also for those who condone, instigate, order, or acquiesce to abuses of detainees.

    Nejprve chci říci vynikající blog! Měl jsem rychlou otázku, kterou bych chtěl
    zeptat se, jestli vám to nevadí. Zajímalo mě zjistit, jak se soustředíte a vyčistíte si myšlenky, než začnete psát.
    Měl jsem těžké chvíle, když jsem si vyčistil myšlenky, když jsem dostal své nápady.
    Opravdu mě baví psaní, ale zdá se to jako prvních 10
    15 minut se obvykle ztratí, prostě se snaží přijít na to, jak začít. Nějaká doporučení nebo tipy?

    I have been using baking soda for dark spots on my face for a few weeks now and I can see some improvement. I mix a teaspoon of baking soda with some water and apply it to the affected areas every night before bed. I leave it on for about 15 minutes and then rinse it off with warm water. I also moisturize my skin afterwards. I have noticed that my dark spots are lighter and less noticeable. I think baking soda for dark spots works by exfoliating the skin and removing dead cells and dirt. It also has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that can help with acne and inflammation. I am happy with the results so far and I will continue using baking soda for dark spots.
