Every Classroom in America Should See this Video

Every Classroom in America Should See this Video

With legislation hurtling through Congress that would allow Bush to redefine the meaning of the Geneva accords, legalize many forms of torture, allow the admission of evidence obtained by torture, and gut the right of habeas corpus for prisoners of the empire, this stunning video is a "must see."

- Brig. Gen. Janis Karpinski describes the chain of command that authorized the infamous tortures at Abu Graib in Iraq.

- Ambassador Craig Murray describes how he discovered the horrible tortures being conducted for the U.S. and the U.K. by the government of Uzbekistan.

- Camilo E. Mejia, member of Iraq Veterans Against the War, tells how ordinary soldiers like him were instructed to treat captured Iraqis "like dogs."

- Dr. Stephen Miles describes the homicide of an Iraqi prisoner and you will see the prisoner's body packed in ice with a U.S. soldier giving the "thumbs up."

- Barbara Olshansky from the Center for Constitutional Rights pulls together the whole picture of this illegal grab for presidential power, unrestrained by law or morality.

The DVD includes four 28-minute long videos of the Bush Crimes Commission hearings, the first one being compelling and visceral footage of the issues of torture and detention. $20 includes shipping and all four videos. Order on line or mail your check made out to Not In Our Name, to NION, 305 West Broadway, #199, New York, NY 10013.

Act now! Order this amazing documentation of the crimes of the Bush regime. Every young person in America deserves to know what kind of country they are living in and where it is going if we do nothing.
