Dear Nader listener,

Thank you for contacting me from my interview with Ralph Nader on April 17, 2021, and for sharing my view that W. Bush should be investigated, if not jailed, but foggy on how to do that. Below are six different things you could do (or a variation, of course). I have come to believe that mentioning my book, The Case Against George W. Bush may not be useful or even helpful, given few will read it. More important is to stick to the issues and the succinct reason W. should be at least investigated. Few know, for example, that W. Bush confirmed that he approved waterboarding, considered torture under US Law going back to at least 1902.

 

 

1. Attached is a copy of the letter that I recently sent to the head of the Department of Justice (DOJ), with a similar letter to six others there.

2. Here is the contact info for the top seven people at the DOJ.

4. To contact the DOJ:

To report a crime: https://www.justice.gov/actioncenter/report-crime

5. Here are a few words that can be a powerful question, to at least start the recipient thinking:

“How can you (we) not go after George W. Bush, an admitted torturer and a man who lied to our country to start an unnecessary war that caused the death of over 500,000, many of them women and children?”

6. Contact your District Attorney and, of course, your Representatives.

The most important thing is to take some action. Many know about the crimes of W. To make progress, we need people to take action. One or two letters doesn’t mean much. 100 letters is a movement!

Thank you in advance for your commitment to make this a fairer world.

Respectfully,

Steven (Steve) C. Markoff
