Please sign the following petition to President Obama. It has been set up with the White House. We must achieve 100,000 signatures within one month or we'll not get a reply. Be sure to get everyone you know including your family members to support by signing at http://wh.gov/in72s .
" Dear President Obama:
We, the undersigned, respect and approve of your decision
to aggressively investigate and prosecute the stealing of
government and corporate secrets. However, judging from the
terrible injustice and harm done to Sherry Chen and Professor
Xiaoxing Xi, your policy has been abused. Aggressiveness has
seemingly been interpreted as permission to be careless; worse
perhaps, as permission to use race and national origin for
profiling - practices which we rejected even at the height of the
anti-terrorists investigations soon after 9/11.
We respectfully request that you instruct the Department of
Justice that due diligence and due process must be meticulously
followed, and that racial and national origin profiling is not
We also feel strongly that there ought to be apologies to and
compensations for the victims to make them whole.
We Can Deliver an Implicit but Powerful Message to Pres. Obama
What if we achieved the 100,000 signature requirement faster than anyone has ever done and set a record that can't be broken for years?
Wouldn't that send an implicit but extremely powerful message to Pres. Obama about the depth of our resentment against the apparent ABUSE of his sound policy to aggressively investigate and prosecute the stealing of national and corporate secrets?
