June 26 is the Anniversary of the UN Convention Against Torture. With the April release of the Department of Justice "torture memo's" and our government's reluctance to hold a full investigation with the possibility of prosecution, this is a critical time to speak out for justice. The soul of our nation is at stake!
Ray McGovern was a CIA analyst for 27 years, is co-founder of Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity, and currently works at Tell the Word, the publishing arm of the ecumenical Church of the Savior in inner-city Washington, D.C..
Jean Maria Arrigo is a social psychologist and independent scholar. As a dissident member of the 2005 American Psychological Association Task Force on Psychological Ethics and National Security, Arrigo united with others to deter psychologists' involvement in torture.
