Web Letter

This is a moment when the Nuremberg principles should--must!--be widely disseminated, to newspapers, Congresspeople and other influencers. Not only because of Iraq (and the criminality of simply being there, much less our actions) but even more urgently because of the imminent action against Iran.

Please--let the Nuremberg principles be brought relentlessly--that is, again and again--before the public.

Americans love to talk about "the greatest generation" and mourn for our lost vigor and morality. The Nuremberg principles--developed and insisted upon by Americans--embody that vigor, clarity and morality. Let us rediscover them!
