Dear Friends:

Please contact your Senators tomorrow  morning, Tuesday, September 16, 2008!

The Senate is currently  debating the FY 2009 Defense Authorization bill, and 
one of the  pending amendments, Amendment Number 5369, would provide the  
International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) with access to all  detainees.  
The ICRC functions as an independent observer whose  function is to ensure that 
prisoners are not denied their basic  human rights.  Allowing the ICRC access 
would help to end the  use of torture and other abusive practices.

Please call the  Capitol Switchboard at 202-224-3121 and ask to speak with 
each of  your Senators' offices.  Tell them that you would like the  Senate to 
vote on Amendment Number 5369 to the FY 2009 Defense  Authorization bill, and 
that you hope that they will support  providing the International Committee of 
the Red Cross with access  to all U.S.-held detainees.

Thank you for your good work in  the fight to end torture.

Rev. Richard Killmer
Executive Director, NRCAT
