"Speak Out For A Special Prosecutor For Bush/Cheney At The Obama Change Site" by the Pen


We Were Promised Change, And Change Is What We Will Hold Our New
President To

Of all the things that must change, the FIRST thing that must change
now is that the rule of law and respect for the Constitution must be
fully restored. Obama has set up a site where he professes to want to
know what his priorities should be. Therefore let us all go there and
make the number one idea this one.

Appoint a Special Prosecutor for the Crimes of the Bush
Administration

The direct link is rather longish, so we have set up a special action
page that will open up a new window and forward you directly (or else
look for the link at the very top) to the page where you can vote for
this most critical idea.

Important: To cast a vote, when you get to the voting site, click on
the box with the current number count to the left of the main header
for the idea, NOT on the widget on the right hand side of the page
lower down, which just reloads the same page.

President-elect Obama recently said, "If I found out that there were
high officials who knowingly, consciously broke existing laws,
engaged in cover-ups of those crimes with knowledge forefront, then I
think a basic principle of our Constitution is nobody above the law."
Attorney General-designate Eric Holder recently said top Bush
Administration officials "authorized the use of torture, approved of
secret electronic surveillance of American citizens, secretly
detained American citizens without due process of law, denied the
Writ of Habeas Corpus to hundreds of accused enemy combatants, and
authorized the use of procedures that both violate international law
and the United States Constitution."

We must now hold them to honor their words of accountability.
The Bush administration has refused to investigate its own crimes and
President Bush may issue blanket pardons before he leaves, indeed we
fully expect him to even try to pardon himself. But that is all the
more reason why we must keep as much heat as possible on the
potential for real post inauguration prosecutions. No pardon could
possibly be broad enough to exonerate the entire litany of the crimes
of the outgoing White House without itself raising serious
constitutional questions.

President Obama must appoint a Special Prosecutor - ideally Patrick
Fitzgerald - to fully investigate these crimes and prosecute those
responsible to demonstrate that we are truly a Nation of Laws and no
one - including the President - is above the law. And you can make
sure that happens by going to this link and helping to make the
appointment of a special prosecutor the number one idea on the Obama
"change" site by a very large and dramatic margin.

And then after you vote, if you haven't requested your "Impeach
Both!!!" cap yet (we just shipped out another 1000 this week), if you
want to go back and get one the page left behind by the link above
will allow you to do that. Because anyone who thinks that the Bush
administration has even now finished committing high crimes has
greatly misunderestimated their depth of incorrigible malfeasance.
Be careful what you ask for because you just might get it. Our new
president has asked us to be involved in telling him what to do. Let
us find out if that was for real or not, by continuing to speak out,
in greater numbers than ever before.

Please take action NOW, so we can win all victories that are supposed
to be ours, and forward this alert as widely as possible.
