VIDEO- Protest of Torture Pimp at Georgetown U today
selected bits including David Cole's comments at the end. If you want to hear this mediocre excuse of a torture apologist's remarks, you'll have to hear the whole thing on Cspan.

3. Tell the truth about torture, Mr. President --- Amnesty petition
Tell the truth about torture, Mr. President: Next steps 1/23/2006
Our campaign to get our message to the President and his administration is gaining momentum. We want the President to tell the truth about torture and call for accountability for past acts, so that torture in our names never happens again.

In just one week, President Bush will give his State of the Union address. The time is now to send a message to the President:
Americans want him to tell the truth about the United States engaging in acts of torture, and demand that he call for accountability through an independent investigation.

So far, we've collected 22,000 names asking for truth and accountability. Now, we're taking it to the heart of our nation, the Capitol - literally.

7. I finally got to see this... These students deserve a round of applause!
It looks like as the speech went on, more and more of the students stood to join the protest. It made me tear up...

Thank goodness there are young Americans like this who will fight for our Constitution! :)
:applause: :applause: :applause: :applause:
