Conspiracy by US Government to Put Satirist Out of Business

Alberto Gonzales: "The Convention Against Torture treaty, as ratified by the Senate, doesn't prohibit the use of 'cruel, inhuman or degrading' tactics on non-U.S. citizens who are captured abroad, in Iraq or elsewhere."
Torture Treaty Doesn't Bar 'Cruel, Inhuman' Tactics, Gonzales Says

www.commondreams.org/headlines05/0126-06.htm

Notable quotes from Alberto Gonzales, our likely next Attorney General:

"The Convention Against Torture treaty, as ratified by the Senate, doesn't prohibit the use of 'cruel, inhuman or degrading' tactics on non-U.S. citizens who are captured abroad, in Iraq or elsewhere."

"Any public discussion about interrogation tactics would help al-Qaida terrorists..."

Write your US elected representatives to demand that they not only oppose the confirmation of Gonzales, but subject Bush's nominee to just a few of the procedures that he and the White House are refusing to call torture. The League of Women Voters provides a nifty and easy way to find them and email them.
