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. The photos, many
from
Bagram, (detention facilities doubled to hold 60,000 detainees) would have
shown
that torture was pervasive, not an aberration. But the release was blocked.
Four
torture memos revealed in sadistic detail that the Bush lawyers orchestrated
the
torture of detainees.

The Obama Administration is continuing indefinite detention, CIA rendition,
executive powers, and denying detainee right of legal challenge. Democratic
leader Nancy Pelosi knew about the torture as early as 2002.
Many national groups are holding peaceful protests to demand
prosecution of War Criminals.

We will be urging the demand of US Attorney General Eric Holder to appoint a
Special Prosecutor!
