Mukasey as Attorney General? NO WAY!
Do we condone torture? Are we complicit with the Bush regime?
COME OUT to protest: Wednesday, Nov. 7 at Dianne Feinstein’s SF office!
To the Bay Area World Can’t Wait Community:

The nomination of Michael Mukasey as the Bush regime’s next Attorney General is an outrage, pure and simple. If he can’t say waterboarding is torture — what does it mean that he is in line for the highest level of leadership in the Justice Department???

For Schumer and Feinstein to approve Mukasey’s nomination means their acceptance of torture as legitimate national policy and practice. A decisive YES TO TORTURE vote from the leadership of the Democratic Party . . . Yes, the same Democratic leadership that has gone belly-up for every other crime and escalation of crime pushed forward by the Bush regime. The Patriot Act, the rendition and torturing of "terror" suspects, all of it.

What does this mean for us, the ordinary people living in this country, when the U.S. government takes such a direction?

If you had lived in Germany in 1933, the questions were similiar.

"People look at all this [what the Bush regime is doing] and think of Hitler - and they are right to do so. The Bush regime is setting out to radically remake society very quickly, in a fascist way, and for generations to come. We must act now; the future is in the balance.”
- from the World Can’t Wait Call
