Saying No To Torture
Senator Feinstein, Chair of the SSCI, had returned the report to the White House objecting that with the redactions the substance of the report was indecipherable. And there it had stalled.
Twelve Nobel laureates signed an open letter to President Barrack Obama, initiated by The Community in co-ordination with ACLU, and released on The Community. The letter urged Obama to release the report, and for the US to learn the lessons from this dark chapter in its history, and to take the steps needed to ensure that it could not reoccur.
When The Community issued the letter from twelve Nobel laureates on the US torture program, the story was on the front page of the New York Times, as well as the front page of the Huffington Post. It was covered by the Telegraph, Al Jazeera, Human Rights Watch, the Daily Beast, and others around the world.
The President responded. The report was released.
