Try Charles Taylor for Crimes Against Humanity

On February 8, 2006, the House International Relations subcommittee on Africa held a hearing on Liberia and its long path toward reconstruction. If you will remember, Charles Taylor was the warlord who terrorized these poor people. We allowed him to flee to Nigeria under the conditions he would no longer be involved with anymore wars, helping terrorists, causing chaos in neighboring countries such as Sierre Leone, etc.

Well, he has not kept those conditions, so he should tried as a war criminal with a charge of Crimes Against Humanity.

One of the sad parts about this is that during the hearing he was referenced once. ONCE. There shall be no peace for our brothers and sisters as long as this animal is allowed to roam the earth freely.

Of all the people he has slaughtered, of all the terrorists he continues to give aid and comfort and money, he gets one mention?!? This is an outrage. Please contact your Senators and Congressperson toll free at 1-877-762-8762. Let them know we are watching them, and they had better act. This is unacceptable.
