>Subject: Say No to Military Commissions
>
>Dear Friend,
>
>URGENT!
>
>Administration officials are reportedly recommending that President Obama use military commissions to try the 9/11 perpetrators. This would be a grave mistake.
>
>We must not let President Obama slide back on human rights commitments to try detainees in federal courts. We must continue to oppose the military tribunal kangaroo courts where detainees are tried under a cloak of total darkness, confronted by heresay evidence and by confessions coerced through torture. Our nation MUST be held to a higher standard.
>
>Please try as many of these avenues as you can to express your opposition to military tribunals:
>
>I called the White House to say that I don't want military commission trials ? that we need to use the most effective way to prosecute suspected terrorists: federal courts.
>
>Will you make your own call at (202) 456-1111?
>
>Urge the President not to cave to fearmongering and to stay on track to close Guantanamo the right way, through our federal Justice system.
>
>You can also sign the petition and Tweet here:
>http://act.ly/1re
>
>or here to demand that detainees be tried in federal courts:
>http://closeguantanamo.humanrightsfirst.org/
>
>Or create your own message at www.whitehouse.gov
>
>Please also send your message to the head of the Department of Justice, Attorney General Eric Holder at AskDOJ@usdoj.gov
>and demand a return to an independent Department of Justice and the Rule of Law for all.
>
>Sincerely,
>
