From Jane Hamsher at firedoglake.com:
If you saw the front page of the New York Times today, you saw them pick up an important story that Marcy Wheeler broke on FDL on Saturday -- Khalid Sheikh Mohammed was waterboarded 183 times in one month.
She reported how the interrogators went far outside of anything they were legally allowed to do, even under the expansive laws written by the Bush Administration.
Marcy's work shows just how important it is that Attorney General Eric Holder appoint an independent special prosecutor to investigate the torture of detainees.
You can sign the petition here:
The ACLU will be delivering the signatures to Secretary Holder later this week. The deadline for signatures is 9am ET, Thursday, April 23.
Thanks for taking the time to stand up for the rule of law.
