War on Terror

Though the CIA claims to have only waterboarded three detainees during the War on Terror, evidence has surfaced that they waterboarded at least one more. Human Rights Watch has revealed that in 2003, as the CIA rounded up and interrogated Libyan revolutionaries, Mohammed Shoroeiya was waterboarded.

Credible authorities agree unequivocally that waterboarding is torture. In fact, after World War II US forces hanged Japanese soldiers for using waterboarding. Now our secret armed forces use it with impunity. We must condemn the CIA’s egregious use of this form of torture, which betrays core American principles.

If we don’t stand up to such abuses, we assure that they will occur again. If we don’t demand full accountability, we empower future abuses. Please, add your name to this petition and demand an investigation into these new waterboarding allegations.

PETITION TO THE US CONGRESS: The United States cannot abide by torture. We demand that you open a full congressional inquiry into recent revelations of waterboarding in Libya, which controvert CIA claims. <—- ACLU email
