Say NO! to aggressive war and torture in your name

As National Security Advisor, Condoleezza Rice chaired meetings of the National Security Council’s Principals Committee. As ABC news reported in April 2008, the committee authorized water-boarding of three people in U.S. custody, and the discussions were so detailed they were “almost choreographed—down to the number of times CIA agents could use a specific tactic.” According to the report, the role of Condoleezza Rice “was decisive.” Amidst concerns that the program was harming US image abroad, Rice reportedly told the CIA,

"This is your baby. Go do it."

And they're still "doing it." Until this government prosecutes and repudiates the criminal acts of the former regime, we can expect expansion of imperialist war and occupation in Libya and beyond.
