Just a quick note to thank everyone here, and in the larger blogosphere, for all the hard work we have done on bringing the Bush Torture Program into the national spotlight.
Of course we can never say for sure how much all of our hard work contributed to this success. (Personally….I give us FULL credit!!!) But watching the media today, it is the number one issue.
It is Front Page news around the country, it is leading the news casts.
Matthews is destroying John Ensign (R-Denial) right now. Who is STILL insisting that “the US did not torture.”
Nancy F’in Pelosi has called for a Committee.
Debbie Wasserman-Schultz says we should absolutely prosecute Bush and Cheney if the evidence is there.
And the list goes on and on.
Of course there is still much work to be done, but we have made it over the hump. This is no longer a “fringe” issue. It is, for now, lol, THE issue. We will have much work to do to pushback on the pushback and keep the pressure on. But for now, we can take a deep breath and gather our energy for that fight. We worked hard and our hard work…worked.
I know how much effort YOU have put into this. I know how hard it is to live with this issue day in and day out. I am immensely proud of ALL of us, from the occasional commenter, who sustained us with their interest and energy, to our Loudest Yellers!
Give yourself a pat on the back. You DID make a difference in this crazy world.
