"A Conversation with Professor John Yoo"

Deputy assistant attorney general in the Justice Department's Office of Legal Counsel from 2001 to 2003, Yoo helped draft the Patriot Act and author the legal basis for the NSA 'PRISM' program.

World Can't Wait Joins with a large section of the U.S. population -- and billions worldwide -- in outrage at the unconstitutional, illegitimate surveillance of whole populations by the U.S. which has been covered up and lied about for years.

We Defend Edward Snowden for his courageous action in revealing vast, unlawful surveillance by the United States.

We Call on others to join us in opposing the U.S. government's plans to gain custody of him, to try and imprison him on espionage charges.

It is absurd that Snowden faces criminal charges from the U.S. government who has been caught red-handed breaking its own laws while it flaunts international law by the use of targeted killing and indefinite detention.

It is outrageous that this same government refuses to investigate, much less prosecute, those responsible for the crimes of aggressive war and torture while now carrying out an unjust prosecution against Bradley Manning for exposing these crimes.

As the San Francisco Republican Party celebrates war crimes, we will stand in solidarity with John Kiriakou, Aaron Swartz, Julian Assange, Thomas Drake, Coleen Rowley, Daniel Ellsberg and all those willing to say NO! Not In Our Name!

Prosecute those in U.S. government guilty of committing war crimes and crimes against humanity, NOT those who blow the whistle on these crimes.
