As you’ll notice on the top of the page, I now have a nifty banner stating the same message as the title of this post: Stop Terror. Stop Torture. Stop Gonzales. Last week I urged my Senators, Saxby Chambliss (202.224.3521 & 770.226.8633) and Johny Isakson (202.224.3643 & 404.347.2202 ), to oppose the nomination of Gonzales for Attorney General. This man was the architect of the misguided judgement and loose interpretation of the Geneva Convention that led directly to the atrocities at Abu Ghraib. He should be held to the fire not held up as a paragon of legal virtue fit for the highest law enforcement position in our nation.
I am urging everyone to contact their Senators and voice your contempt for Alberto Gonzales. Georgia residents can get the appropriate phone numbers from the Senate web site as can anyone else. Remind your Senator that a vote for Gonzales is a vote condoning torture and that puts OUR troops at risk.
UPDATE: I just called both my Senators at their local offices and sent email via their web forms. Have you done your part?
UPDATE II: I’ve added phone numbers for both Senators so you don’t have to do any work, except actually dialing and speaking your mind.
