Petition to Attorney General Eric Holder:  Appoint a Special Prosecutor


President Obama released four memoranda from the Bush Justice Department that sets forth in graphic detail the torture techniques that were authorized and ordered by the highest officials in our government.  These techniques are indisputably crimes, and the U.S., in the past, has prosecuted leaders of other countries for using them.  The rule of law demands that our leaders not be above the law.

Petition language:
Given the seriousness of these crimes, we the undersigned call for Attorney General Eric Holder to immediately appoint a special prosecutor to determine if criminal proceedings are warranted for Justice Department lawyers who legalized these crimes, and the high level executive branch officials who ordered them.
