Torture is a moral issue

November 11th, 2004 (10:32 am)

current mood: angry

John Ashcroft has resigned, and Bush's nominee to replace him is Alberto Gonzales, who's been Bush's chief legal advisor for years. He was the one who claimed that:

  • Torture was legal.
  • The President had the authority to seize US citizens on US soil and hold them without charge, trial, or access to lawyers.
  • The President, as commander-in-chief, was not bound by US law.

Judging by his record, Gonzales is a lawless, amoral man, interested solely in making himself useful to the powerful. Such a person is wholly inappropriate as Attorney General. Please sign the petition to block his confirmation.
