As a key player on the Bush/Cheney torture team, Jay Bybee was rewarded by Bush with a lifetime appointment to the Ninth Circuit Court. In a different world - one that recognized accountability and justice - Bybee (and his underlings like John Yoo) would face prosecution and trial!
Torture is a war crime, and a crime against humanity. Those who have carried out great crimes under cover of high office must be brought to justice.
Let Bybee know: people of conscience insist on speaking up and speaking out; his crimes will be known everywhere he goes.
Let other judges who tolerate a torturer as a colleague see orange jumpsuits everywhere they go.
Let the courthouse press know that there is a growing movement of people living in this country who will not allow torture judges, torture professors, torture lawyers, torture ex-presidents and vice-presidents, et al to waltz back into comfortable civilian lives while their victims suffer.
The hands of Jay Bybee, John Yoo, and the entire "Torture Team" cohort are covered in blood.
We will set up our BUSH/BYBEE MUSEUM OF TORTURE outside the courthouse. Be sure to bring your picture id if you are going inside.
Jay Bybee will be on the bench 9:00 a.m.
Courtroom 1, 3rd Floor
