Full Accountability for Torture Prosecution!

<a href="http://www.multifaithpeace.org/images/articles/200...; title="View unscaled image"></a> Join [http://takeaction.amnestyusa.org/siteapps/advocacy...; Amnesty International's campaign for FULL ACCOUNTABILITY of U.S. Sponsored Torture].

According to recent news reports, Attorney General Eric Holder is close to appointing a Special Prosecutor to investigate allegations of torture and abuse. This would be a welcome and crucial step towards demonstrating a commitment to human rights and the rule of law. However, it is possible that the investigation will be limited in scope. After years of evidence that torture and human rights violations were ordered and authorized from above, only lower level personnel have been held to account. We canít let impunity for torture continue. Urge President Obama to ensure full accountability for torture and other human rights violations, as required by U.S. and international law: with a full investigation, prosecutions where warranted and remedy for victims.
