Indiscriminate killing of civilians, summary execution, arbitrary seizures of people and property, secret unlimited detention and torture have been authorized, widely practiced and both defended and denied publicly. President Bush, the self-proclaimed “decider,” reached for unlimited dictatorial power whenever he proclaimed the national security was threatened. And he considered himself above the law where domestic affairs were concerned even a he signed Acts of Congress into law.

A culture of corruption in contracting for security services, war relief programs, reconstruction in war- devastated countries have unjustly enriched favored predators abroad while at home mortgage lenders, banks, insurance companies and corporate executives exploited Bush administration policies intending enrichment of the rich that with the radically increased national war debt and military spending have led to the collapse of the global economy, threatening massive unemployment and world wide depression with all their consequences for the general welfare.

Widespread illegal surveillance, at home and abroad, persecution, harassment of and discrimination against Muslims, other minorities and against political opposition by U.S. government agencies- the Immigration Service, Border Patrol, IRS, FBI, prosecution by the Department of Justice- have violated the most precious rights of citizens and aliens alike, injured the United States in international relations and cooperation and made new enemies of many nations. Corrupt conduct by Bush politicized appointees, committing crimes in at least six Executive Departments, most notably Interior and Justice, has brought lawlessness into the government bureaucracy itself, costing billions of dollars and creating distrust of government.

Having failed to impeach President Bush, Vice President Cheney, and Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld and other Civil officers of the U.S. for their supreme international crime while they were in office, a broad coalition of peace, human rights, labor, law, environmental and other organizations are now vigorously seeking U.S. prosecution for their crimes. Your acts in common cause are an enormous encouragement.

With unity, cooperation and perseverance, we shall overcome, or be undone, together. We dare not fail.
