But there are still some major obstacles standing in our way:
• Senator Graham’s legislation may have been capped for now, but he’s still got his sights on gutting fair, federal trials and legislating indefinite detention. President Obama seems ready to play a game of ‘let’s make a deal’.
• The Obama administration has yet to announce a new date for closing Guantanamo after it missed its self-imposed deadline.
• The President and Congress continue to shirk responsibility on ensuring accountability for U.S. torture, as required by law: with a full investigation, prosecution where warranted and remedy for victims.
Musician Tom Morello also wants to thank you for standing against torture. Musician and anti-torture activist Tom Morello would like to share a limited download of his cover song “Human” with those of you who helped us stand (more than) 10,000 strong against torture.
