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.

    Dear elected representatives,

    I am writing to urge you to appoint a special prosecutor who will conduct a comprehensive, impartial, and transparent investigation into the alleged involvement of high-ranking U.S. officials in the abuse and torture of detainees. It is of utmost importance that we address these serious allegations and ensure accountability for any wrongdoing.

    The reported mistreatment of detainees in places such as Guantánamo Bay, Iraq, Afghanistan, and secret detention facilities has raised significant concerns regarding human rights violations and adherence to international law. To uphold the principles of justice and uphold the reputation of our nation, it is imperative that we thoroughly examine these allegations.

    By appointing a special prosecutor, we can establish an independent body with the authority and resources to investigate these matters impartially. This investigation should aim to uncover the truth, identify any individuals responsible for these abuses, and hold them accountable for their actions.

    Transparency throughout the investigation is crucial to restore public trust and confidence in our government. The findings should be made accessible to the public, allowing for a comprehensive understanding of the investigation’s conclusions and any necessary legal actions that may follow.

    As representatives of the people, it is your duty to ensure that our government upholds the values of justice, human rights, and the rule of law. By taking swift action in appointing a special prosecutor, you will demonstrate a commitment to addressing these grave allegations and working towards a more just and accountable society.

    I trust that you will carefully consider this request and take the necessary steps to initiate a thorough investigation. The pursuit of truth, justice, and accountability should always remain at the forefront of our nation’s priorities.

    Thank you for your attention to this matter.
