  •  Thank you for your service, sir. (9+ / 0-)

    Thank you for standing up and doing what is right.

    My husband was a Vietnam vet who survived torture. He suffered from his injuries for over thirty years, until his fatal heart attack three and a half years ago. In his name, and in his memory, I fight every day to stop torture as the law, policy and practice of the United States, and to have those responsible held accountable.

    Please consider, if you haven't already, talking with President Obama about modifying Appendix M of the Army interrogation manual to remove sleep deprivation and sensory deprivation as allowable techniques. These techniques can literally destroy a mind, as witness Jose Padilla.

       With gratitude,
       Standing for justice and accountability,
               For Dan,
               Heather
