Legalizing Torture

This post is very important. It's regarding a rider or amendment to the 9/11 bill under consideration at present, and it would allow the US to extradite prisnors to countries that will torture them - with no recourse to judicial review. I probably don't have much of a readership, but I'd urge, cajole and beg anyone who stumbles upon this to take action and contact their representatives.

The post ends with:

To other bloggers: Please consider linking to this post. This bill will pass unless people know about it, and no newspaper has reported on it. The press coverage of the CBS memos showed that blogs can break a story and have an effect--and this story is about 100 times more important than Bill Burkett's shenanigans and CBS news’ negligence.

I'm talking to Republicans, conservatives and libertarians as well as to Democrats and liberals. I know that you are more decent than this, and that you do not approve of torture. Please prove me right, and do something about it. Republicans are the majority in Congress, and they are much more likely to listen to you than to any Democrat. The press is much more likely to report on the story if liberal and conservative blogs both cover it.
