We had a decent turn out to our meeting despite that fact that many of you were trying to dry out from the big Rockford flood the day before. We had 18 people attend with 7 new people. We showed the video “Stop the Abuse of Power” and it was followed by a lively discussion, It is really worth watching and was timely with Bush finally admitting to CIA interrogation camps overseas last week.
