In response to an ACLU lawsuit, the Pentagon had been court-ordered to
release photos of detainee abuse in U.S. facilities from 2001-2006.  These
photos, including many from Bagram, Afghanistan, where the detention
facilities have been doubled to hold 60,000 detainees, would have shown that
torture was wide-spread, sustained and systematic, not an aberration but an
integral part of the global war of terror on the people. But the release was
blocked. Weeks ago four torture memos revealed the sadistic detail with
which Bush’s Lawyers choreographed the torture of detainees.   Cheney and
the open advocates of torture scream that they must be able to use “harsh
methods” to win their global war on terror.

The Obama Administration is continuing indefinite detention, CIA rendition,
Bush’s executive powers, and denying Bagram detainees the right to challenge
their detention, says prosecution of torturers would stop them from “moving
forward”. Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi knew about the torture as early as
2002, but said and did nothing to stop it.

*IT’S UP TO THE PEOPLE TO ACT! *World Can’t Wait and other groups are
planning non-violent civil resistance protests to demand prosecution of the
Bush-era War Criminals. Call Attorney General Eric Holder 202-353-1555 or
