NC Stop Torture Now got a mention in the front-page of the October 1, 2016 edition of the Raleigh News & Observer article on Burr’s Intelligence Committee record:
Two quotes of note:
- “NC Stop Torture Now, a group of faith and human rights activists in North Carolina, has even called Burr ‘one of the chief defenders of CIA abuses.’”
- “The sharpest rebuke of Burr came this year in a column, published in the Observer [and the N&O], by Larry Wilkerson, a retired U.S. Army colonel who was chief of staff to Secretary of State Colin Powell. By refusing to ‘come to grips’ with the torture program, Wilkerson wrote, Burr ‘ensures our real power in the world is diminished by the unpunished criminals in our midst.’”
Now’s the time to write letters to the editor bouncing off that article…Betsy Crites has an excellent example in the October 1, 2016 News & Observer!
