I just signed a petition calling for Judge Jay Bybee’s impeachment.
Judge Bybee, for those who aren’t aware, is currently under federal investigation by the Justice Department’s Office of Professional Responsibility.
The investigation centers around a legal memo Bybee wrote during the Bush Administration, authorizing “enhanced” interrogation techniques- techniques that the Justice Department considers to be torture.
Mr. Bybee isn’t just in trouble in the good ol’ US of A either- he’s also being investigated in Spain for war crimes.
Currently, this not-so-nice guy enjoys a cushy gig as a federal judge in the 9th district.
Anyway, if you’re interested, the petition is being sponsored by Moveon.org.
If you aren’t interested, shame on you.
This is a morally bankrupt man.
A man that believes that torturing fellow humans is not only an appropriate action- but an action that makes us safer in our own beds at night.
He’s wrong, he’s criminal, and he needs to be held accountable for his actions.
