I signed the ACLU’s petition calling on U.S. Attorney General Mukasey to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the CIA’s destruction of interrogation tapes in order to avoid legal action against its operatives. To the ACLU’s boilerplate, I added:
Our nation is founded on the notion that no one and no purpose is above the law. Please see that the full facts of this case come to light in a thorough and independent investigation. The American people expect you to protect our Constitution and our national ideals. Please discharge your responsibility by seeing that justice is impartially executed in this case.
