OT - This is serious


Ok guys, now this is serious stuff.

A lawyer of the Defense Department, William J. Haynes II, who authored a memo
concluding that the President wasn't bound by laws prohibiting torture and
that government agents who might torture prisoners at his direction could not
be
prosecuted by the Justice Department, has been nominated by Bush for a
LIFETIME APPOINTMENT as a FEDERAL JUDGE.

http://www.commondreams.org/headlines04/0607-01.htm

I think you'll agree that anyone reaching that conclusion, or even making an
attempt to craft such an argument, has no business being a Federal Judge for
life.  Please scroll down to the website below and sign the petition blocking
this appointment.

Thanks!

Dear Friend,
I just signed on to a petition with People For the American Way, asking
President George W. Bush to withdraw his nomination of William Haynes to a
lifetime
seat on the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals. William Haynes is none other than
the General Counsel for the Department of Defense b the lawyer who helped
design the administrationbs detention and enemy combatant policies.
Do you want such a person deciding what is constitutional as a federal judge?
Join me in calling on Bush to withdraw this nomination. Putting a lawyer
linked to the Abu Ghraib policies on the federal bench is so outrageous, Bush
needs to hear a loud and clear message on this one!
Go here and sign now:
