“As President, I will close Guantánamo, reject the Military Commissions Act, and adhere to the Geneva Conventions” – Barack Obama, 8/1/07
And yesterday President-elect Obama again stated he would sign an executive order closing Guantanamo Bay. I can think of no better first action for our new president. However, Obama needs to know where we, the people, stand on this issue and he needs to know we have his back. The fearmongers are on the talk show circuit right now, discussing torture as if it’s a debatable topic. There is no gray area: torture is wrong and torture does not yield good intelligence.
Please take a moment to let President-elect Obama know you support his promise to restore U.S. morality and leadership.
