ACLU call for release of torture documents by the Bush administration

From American Civil Liberties Union

The American Civil Liberties Union have urged the House International Relations Committee to adopt three resolutions of inquiry directing the Bush administration to provide all documents on the development and implementation of its torture and extraordinary rendition policies.

“America cannot hold itself as a moral beacon to the world if we violate the rule of law by engaging in torture and extraordinary rendition,” said Caroline Fredrickson, Director of the ACLU Washington Legislative Office. “The federal government should not be kidnapping people and sending them to countries that engage in torture. These resolutions will shine a bright light into a dark hole by requiring the federal government to disclose its activities to Congress.”
