Support Senator Durbin!
Senator Richard Durbin (D-IL) is getting all sorts of flack from the wingnuts for speaking the truth about the horrors of Gitmo and the rest of the American gulag (based on FBI reports, no less). We need to contact Senator Durbin and express our support. Here's what I wrote:
Dear Senator:We should also contact our own congresscritters telling them to support Durbin's accurate remarks (if she hasn't already, I can imagine Senator Stabenow saying something to "distance" herself from Durbin's remarks--don't let her get away with it!).
I want to express my support for your recent statement regarding the abuse and torture of "detainees" in US custody. Auschwitz, the Soviet Gulag and the killing fields of Cambodia weren't created overnight. They started on much smaller scales, and were only able to grow to their full-blown horror because not enough people had the courage to take a stand and put a stop to it.
You have seen the abyss into which we are sinking and had the courage to speak out. Thank you very much.
