Take Action: Support a Truth & Reconciliation Commission

Here is your chance to support Sen. Leahy and his progress toward investigating Bush and Co. This can be the first step towards getting at least something done in the way of at least learning if there is enough to charge them with crimes.

If there is enough to charge them, they can either do it here or move it to the UN and take it to the World Court. But at least it is a step forward. So please sign the petition and lets move it forward.

Support Sen. Patrick Leahy and his Truth & Reconciliation Commission.

Full Petition Text:
I hereby join Senator Patrick Leahy's call for the establishment of a truth and reconciliation commission, to investigate the Bush-Cheney Administration's constitutional abuses so we make sure they never happen again. These abuses may include the use of torture, warrantless wiretapping, extraordinary rendition, and executive override of laws.

A truth and reconciliation commission should be tasked with seeking answers so that we can develop a shared understanding of the failures of the recent past. Rather than vengeance, we need a fair-minded pursuit of what actually happened. The best way to move forward is getting to the truth and finding out what happened -- so we can make sure it does not happen again.

I signed the petition, and did the "share this" thingy on purplegranny too.

thanks for the heads-up Annette. I had heard something on the radio about it, but it's kind of hard to write down websites while driving ;)
