More letters... Too bad they are needed

Dear Mr President,

Are we a country that upholds the law or not?

It's time to appoint a special prosecutor if AG Holder doesn't have enough time to deal with the previous administration's lawlessness and debauchery. (I'm talking torture as well as the Interior dept's partays.)

Uphold the Constitution, Uphold the Law, Uphold our iternational obligations re: our treaties.

It's your Job, it's what you were elected to do, so do it fearlessly, do it boldly, but do it NOW .

Sincerely SB Gypsy

No Torture Involved

I see on the news this morning that the FBI foiled a perhaps serious terrorist threat. (if they're buying their bombs from an FBI informant, can they really be such a serious threat?)

Not only did they not have to resort to torture to find these people and bring them to justice, they will be holding them in American jails, and prosecuting them in American courts.

It's simple, really. 

Justice: with it anything is possible, without it nothing can be right and true.

It's the bedrock upon which our rights and freedoms are built.

It's long past time to bring the wrongdoers to meet the blind lady.

I write another letter

Dear Mr President, 

President Barack Obama's "administration is weighing plans to detain some terror suspects on US soil -- indefinitely and without trial -- as part of a plan to retool military commission trials that were conducted for prisoners held in Guantanamo Bay," The Wall Street Journal said 

I hope to heck this is a misprint. It is more than scary that this administration, which ran on "CHANGE" is ready to double down on the Bush/Cheney excesses. Justice is to be applied to everyone, without exception. Anything else is unacceptable. If the Bush administration instituted policies that left multiple prisoners unable to be prosecuted because of the misconduct of their accusers and interrogators, then that fact must be trumpeted as the number one most pragmatic reason that torture is ILLEGAL PERIOD.

To even contemplate holding anyone prisoner for the rest of their lives without trial is directly against everything that the United States of America stands for. It will put the cap upon the degradation of American Ideals.  

For the love of everything we believe in and hold dear, CEASE AND DESIST WITH THE HIGH LEVEL GOVERNMENT LAWBREAKING.  

Thank You 
SB Gypsy
