We're sorry, this alert is no longer available. If you would like to learn more about ways you can take action, please visit Physicians for Human Rights.
The short explanation of this alert was: Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT), Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, has proposed the establishment of a bipartisan commission to investigate torture and other abuses committed by the Bush Administration.
PHR has been at the forefront of calls for an investigative commission since we began the Campaign Against Torture over half a decade ago?this is our chance to make it a reality. And we need your support.
Let Senator Leahy, President Obama and the world know you support this commission by signing the petition below. We believe if we can get 10,000 people to sign this petition, we will create the political momentum needed to establish this commission.
Help us reach the goal of 10,000 petition signatures in support of a bipartisan commission to investigate the use of torture by the US Government. Sign on now and forward to 5 friends.
Sign this petition to: >> US Senator Patrick Leahy >> cc: President Barack Obama
