Ban Torture and Fire Blackwater

Dear President-Elect Obama,


Please ban torture, kidnapping and rendition and order Guantanamo and other secret prisons closed.

Please reinstate the Bill of Rights and the rule of law. Restore habeas corpus. Fire Blackwater.

I appreciate your plans to switch to clean, renewable fuels while rebuilding the economy with green infrastructure. Please strengthen the Endangered Species Act, and halt the killing of wolves, even in Alaska. Especially in Alaska.

Get our troops out of Iraq. In Afghanistan, please stop bombing civilians and focus on hearts and minds, building schools and clinics and roads using local people.
