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.

    There are countless in people who are trying to find profitable sport
    betting picks everyday and some of these lose cash plus some of
    these win money. In non technical term covering options, heads they win, tails they
    win. However, before you get all enthusiastic about
    the limits in betting being reduced, remember why it absolutely was done inside
    first place and re-evaluate the chances of the game with one or
    both teams having fun with injured players.

    The tourists use the various transportations such as car, train and airplane for traveling and consequently each day the different tickets of these transportations whether train tickets or cheap airplane tickets are sold. The considerable point is that although any of these transportations has changed and improved in transportation and tourism industry by passing of time and each day we see new ways for transfering passengers in tourism industry, the price of each of them has faced with various changes and variety. This price change in some kinds of transportations is more and in some other is less. Maybe we could say that the airplane is one of the transportations which has the most various ticket price so the possiblity of a chance to choose cheap airplane ticket is really great.بلیط-ارزان-هواپیما
