Press Release for March 6, 2007 action

Official—“US Attorney’s Office Politicized”

Dhafir Supporters—To Present Evidence for Hearings

Tuesday March 6th Noon, Federal Bldg, Syr. NY

Syracuse NY--Supporters of Dr. Rafil Dhafir will be using Congressional/Senate Hearings over the political firings of US Attorney’s on Tuesday March 6th to deliver a memo listing what they say were abuses committed by the US Attorney’s prosecuting Dr. Rafil Dhafir to their local reps.

This weekend the Washington Post (3/3) confirmed that the US attorney’s office has become a political tool for the Bush administration to push its agenda:

White House Backed U.S. Attorney Firings, Officials Say
“The White House approved the firings of seven U.S. attorneys late last year after senior Justice Department officials identified the prosecutors they believed were not doing enough to carry out President Bush's policies on immigration, firearms and other issues, White House and Justice Department officials said yesterday.”

Dhafir supporters are looking to use the hearings to make a statement about how Dr. Dhafir was un-justly prosecuted by the Bush administration for political gain. “They needed trophies in the war on Terror and they pushed US attorneys to deliver,” said supporter Madis Senner. “The same WMD lies, phlaming of critics and nastiness exhibited by the Bush Administration has surrounded the Dhafir case,” Senner said. “The evidence is overwhelming”, Senner concluded.
