DOJ: Prosecute Those Responsible for the Abhorrent CIA Torture Program!
Back in 2007, former President Bush defended U.S. detention and interrogation practices for supposed terror suspects, saying “this administration does not torture people.” Revealed in the 600-page CIA Torture Report are hideous, disgusting, and inhumane abuses committed by CIA officials against “terror suspects.” Please sign this petition to demand the Department of Justice hold senior Bush administration officials, the CIA, and US government officials involved in the creation and implementation of this torture program accountable for these sickening and inhumane crimes so that they may never happen again.
