New attorney general part of the problem?

Hey, it looks like we might be getting another Attorney General who doesn't believe in American values:

President Bush's nominee for Attorney General, Alberto Gonzales, is taking heat for his inattention to the rule of law as former White House Counsel. Leaked memos have revealed Gonzales urging the President to disregard the Geneva Conventions during the war in Afghanistan. These actions laid the groundwork for the abuses at Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo.

The group, Human Rights First, has launched a campaign called End Torture Now calling for the release of all memos written by Mr. Gonzales so his shaky record can be thoroughly examined when he has his Senate confirmation hearing. Visit www.endtorturenow.org to read the leaked memos, learn more about Gonzales and to urge your Senators to take action on this important issue.
