Reject Torture

sign our petition that calls on our elected officials to unequivocally reject torture and degrading treatment

To Congress and the President:

I urge you to unequivocally reject torture and commit yourselves to the following principles:

--Torture is always wrong and will never again be part of America's national security strategy.

--The U.S. government will follow the "Golden Rule" and will never again use interrogation methods that would be unacceptable if used against Americans.

--Detention and interrogation policies will never again be decided in secret without proper review or oversight.

--Torture and cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment of detainees since September 11, 2001, will be investigated by an independent, non-partisan commission.

Thank you.
