The U.S. government cannot effectively promote the rule of law and basic human rights in its foreign policy unless its own actions reflect those principles. Thus, we repeat our call for a program to restore the rule of law, including the condemnation of torture, a commitment to adhere to the Geneva Conventions and international treaties generally, respect for human rights, and support for the United Nations' efforts in protecting human rights and promoting peace and security. With respect to Guantanamo Bay in particular, we believe that if the detention facility cannot be operated in accordance with U.S. and international law, it should be closed; the remaining detainees should either be charged and tried or released; and the use of torture should be permanently disavowed by the Bush administration.

The Importance of the Rule of Civil and Constitutional Law
"Should we "install" democracy
at the point of a gun? The so-called neo-colonialists at the helm
(neo-cons) have become traditional colonialists. Corporate conquest
and occupation is as dangerous as its imperial predecessors. It
may prove more insidious. Short term, it has moved our nation from
peace, prosperity, and security... to war, deficits, and chaos.
We can 'stay the course' of decline, deficits, disaster, and dishonor... or
we can demand accountability and responsibility."

Families for the Fallen' may be onto something, they lost a son, and know that "staying the course" is no option. Instead they want the same thing the rest of American and Iraq wants. A phased withdrawal beginning soon. Common sense. tmf

Have you seen this Headline? Polling Suggests that Americans Love Torture
Out Republican Lies
"In all, by a decisive margin of 53% to 42%, Americans
want Congress to impeach President Bush if he lied about the war in Iraq.
That's quite a "progressive" wing. Bush's lies are well documented. A majority of Americans believe he lied."
"Anyone who condones torture simultaneously rejects the
ideological values that define the United States.
Systematically depriving people of their rights by electrocution, rape, or water-boarding contradicts the principles of this country."
"It was a sad enough measure of how badly the Bush administration has
damaged its moral standing that the secretary
of state had to deny that the president condones torture." .... It was even worse that she had a hard time sounding credible when she did it."

"This is not liberation. It is occupation, and we oppose it
absolutely. At the beginning of the 21st century, we thought we'd seen the

Staying the course not an option
"There is no longer any basis for the hope that a sustained American military occupation will stabilize Iraq."
A not so Swift tactic...Sliming a Vet
President should finally find the courage to debate the real issue
instead of destroying anyone who speaks truth to power
