War on Terror: Demand the Truth

War on Terror: Demand the Truth:

To the US Government: We welcome President Obama’s announcements to begin to end the abusive tactics and policies of Bush's 'War on Terror'. We urge that an independent body is set up to fully investigate those practices, that those responsible are held accountable, and that future US anti terror practices rigorously conform with human rights principles and the rule of law. With this, a new beginning in global relations is possible.

Sign this important petition below and we will present it to the Senate hearing before decisions are made this week:
