"The central defense put forth by Cheney is that the Bush administration's torture regime protected the country from terrorist attack. But the fact is that torture was used for the personal political goals of Bush and Cheney: namely, to sell their Iraq invasion to a very skeptical and disbelieving country," stated Mara Verheyden-Hilliard, attorney and co-founder of the Partnership for Civil Justice Fund (PCJF).
The PCJF filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request on behalf of itself, IndictBushNow.org and the ANSWER Coalition demanding information regarding the detention, torture and death of Ibn al-Sheikh al-Libi. We are seeking expedited release of this information. Under conditions of extreme torture, al-Libi agreed in 2002 to supply the Bush-ordered interrogators what they sought as a political cover for Bush's marketing of the pending war of aggression against Iraq. (To read the actual FOIA, click here.)
Yesterday, Cheney went on national television to complain about the threats from criminal prosecution for Bush-era officials. He and the Bush gang have every reason to be worried.
Al-Libi's tortured and knowingly fabricated testimony was the source of information used by Bush to sell the war to the U.S. Senate, and the source for Colin Powell's bogus and lying presentation to the United Nations in 2003. What were the questions put to him under torture?
With your continued support, we are building a truly massive case for prosecution. The Constitution requires nothing less. Please make an urgently needed donation right now so that we can continue to build this nationwide campaign with demonstrations, rallies, newspaper ads and a nationwide lobbying effort.
This information about al-Libi's imprisonment and questioning under torture must be revealed and the FOIA demand we have issued will do just that. The dueling press conferences and the debate erupting among the political leadership from the current and prior administrations makes the relevance of this information central to addressing once and for all the criminality of Bush's and Cheney's torture program.
