  • Cynthia McKinney Letter to Obama

    Posted by dlt on November 30, 2009

    This morning, I sent this letter to President Obama:

    “Mr. President:

    I are writing to urge you to announce an immediate cease-fire followed by a withdrawal of all US troops from Iraq and Afghanistan in the fastest way consistent with the safety of our forces.

    I urge you to end the use of Predator drones that kill civilians.

    I call upon you to cease all covert operations in Africa, Asia, and North and South America.

    Too many of your military advisors are implicated in torture, war crimes, crimes against humanity, and crimes against the peace.  Your Justice Department  operates at the zenith of injustice, defending Bush Administration criminality in U.S. Courtrooms.

    I wrote to you earlier suggesting that if you did not investigate the crimes of the Bush Administration, you would be viewed as their accessory.  Sadly, war crimes and torture are now committed with your name on them.

    Please bring our troops home now.”

    A peace demonstration is being organized for December 12, 2009 in Washington, D.C. The Emergency Anti-Escalation Rally, also known as the End US Wars Rally, is scheduled for 11am at Lafayette Park at the White House.  I wholly endorse this rally and encourage all who can to participate in Washington, DC or to help a local peace organization committed to ending U.S. wars on that date.

    For more information about the Washington, D.C. December 12, 2009 demonstration, please visit www.endUSwars.org, currently under construction.
