> Coleen,
> Donald Trump just nominated one of the architects of George W. Bush’s torture 
> program to a top job in his Administration. We can’t let that happen. 
> You may not have heard the name Steven Bradbury for quite some time, but 
> during the Bush years, Bradbury provided bogus legal cover for a number of 
> illegal torture techniques [1], including waterboarding, sleep deprivation, 
> slapping, and forcing detainees to wear diapers. [2] Without Bradbury’s ok, 
> some of the worst abuses of the Bush Administration may never have happened. 
> Now, just as news is breaking about a possible American role in a brutal 
> torture program uncovered in Yemen [3], President Trump wants to bring back 
> Bradbury to serve as his General Council at the Transportation Department. 
> The fact is, the people behind Bush's torture program - people like Steven 
> Bradbury - were never held accountable, and that is exactly why we continue 
> to read about alleged American involvement in even more brutal torture. It’s 
> time to take a stand and make it clear - rewarding those behind Bush’s 
> torture program is unacceptable. 
> Coleen, can you add your name to make clear that the architects of torture 
> have no place in our government? 
> <http://act.winwithoutwar.org/sign/tell-senate-block-trumps-torture-nominee/&tag=moveon>Bradbury’s
>  potential move back into government should outrage every American, 
> regardless of party affiliation or ideological leaning. 
> The Justice Department’s own ethics office concluded that Bradbury’s torture 
> memos “were written with the goal of allowing the ongoing CIA [torture] 
> program to continue [4]” and reflected “uncritical acceptance of the CIA’s 
> representations regarding the method of implementation” of certain 
> interrogation techniques. A man whose “legal” analysis included concluding 
> that waterboarding did not cause “severe physical suffering” and did not 
> “amount to the "prolonged mental harm” has no business in our government. 
> The last time Bradbury tried to get a new job in government, the Senate 
> blocked his appointment to a senior Justice Department position precisely 
> because of his role in Bush’s torture program. Now it’s time to tell them to 
> do it again. 
> Click the link below to sign the petition to tell the Senate that the 
> architects of torture don’t belong in our government.

> Together, we have defeated some of the worst nominees of the Trump 
> Administration. We helped keep Mark Green and his anti-Muslim and anti-LGBT 
> views out of the U.S. Army. We helped get Steve Bannon kicked off the 
> National Security Council. Now it's time to do it again.

> Stephen, Ben, Michelle and the Win Without War team 
> P.S. To win this fight, we're going to need a deafening chorus of opposition.
