Sample letter:

Dear Attorney General Holder,

I applaud your commitment to restoring the rule of law by appointing an independent prosecutor to investigate the use of torture and other due process violations carried out in the name of antiterrorism and national security. I am writing to encourage you to ensure

that the investigation is complete. I believe that it is imperative that the American people have an accurate record of the abuses that have occurred and an understanding of how those abuses were tolerated or encouraged. We will never achieve true accountability by limiting the scope of the investigation and overlooking those who commissioned and authorized these illegal acts- some at the highest level of our government. Only by thoroughly investigating the crimes that were committed in America’s name and holding accountable those who authorized torture can we move forward and ensure that these abuses are not repeated. I therefore call for a full and thorough investigation of torture that follows the evidence- wherever it may lead. Thank you for your attention to this critical matter.
