Note to Senator Feingold (D-WI)

Onto Senator Russ Feingold, Democrat Wisconsin, co-sponsor of the McCain-Feingold Act (campaign-finance - almost completely useless, but good effort), member of the Judiciary Committee:

Senator Feingold,

Congratulations on attempting to make a dent in the campaign finance charade.

I'm writing about the case of Sibel Edmonds. I wanted to urge you to allow her to speak publicly about what she knows. Americans deserve the truth if we are to pressure our government to make the necessary changes to help protect us from future terrorist attacks. Likewise, politicians should be interested in making these truths known so the American public can buy into what needs to be done.

Sibel Edmonds has offered to testify in public, but Ashcroft has slapper her with the State Secrets Privilege and has gone as far as to re-classify her testimony from last year. This is an outrage. Mr. Ashcroft's days as AG are already numbered. Stand up to him now and demand that he justify the State Secretes privilege. Demand the the DC Circuit Court decide on the State Secrets privilege in this case.

Our court system is our final reprieve for justice in this country. What the DC Circuit Court, Ashcroft, and The White House are doing is making a mockery of justice. Please put this to an end.

Thank you.
