So I’m disturbed enough about the reports in the Washington Post regarding the use of torture by American soliders and other personnel on prisoners in the soi-disant War on Terror that I decided to write to my Senators and Congressman today. For the record that’s Senator George Allen, Senator John Warner and Congressman Frank Wolf. All Republicans and Allen and Wolf are well-positioned in the Republican Party hierarchy. Here’s hoping.
This is what I sent (adapted for the specific person):
Remember, folks, you, too can write to your elected leaders. You can make your voice heard.
I suppose I’m taking a page from Amnesty International here. I’m a member of AI and I’ve long thought that simply letting people know that I am aware of an issue can have an impact.
