Four major human rights organizations today called on the Senate to reject the nomination of Judge Michael B. Mukasey to serve as Attorney General. In a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee, Human Rights Watch, Physicians for Human Rights, Human Rights First and the Open Society Policy Center said that “a nominee who cannot say simply and without hesitation that waterboarding is a form of torture does not deserve to be Attorney General.”
