Reverse the decision to grant immunity to George W Bush and the members of his administration who planned the Iraq War

We ask the Obama administration to reverse its decision to grant Westfall immunity to George W Bush. The Bush administration committed serious war crimes and needs to be brought to justice in a court of law. The Obama Administration should be aiding the plaintiffs in this case, not trying to obstruct justice. Instruct Attorney General Holder to reverse this decision immediately.

Romania and the CIA Black Sites

European Court Once Again Demands Answers on CIA Black Sites, This Time from Romania
October 10, 2012 - The European Court of Human Rights has told Romania to provide answers and specific documents in the case of Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, a Saudi national who was imprisoned and tortured at a secret CIA detention facility on Romanian soil before being transferred to the US military base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

This is the second time in the last few months that the European Court has ordered a European country to turn over documents relating to its complicity in the CIA’s secret detention program. In July 2012, in the context of a separate case brought by the Open Society Justice Initiative against Poland, the European Court similarly ordered Poland to supply answers and documents relating to al-Nashiri’s detention on a secret CIA prison on Polish territory.

Al-Nashiri’s case against Romania was brought before the European Court by the Open Society Justice Initiative on June 1, 2012. The communication from the court is a significant step forward for the case as only about ten percent of all cases brought before the court make it to this phase. read more>>>
