Why Everything the Bush Administration is Doing Is STILL Intolerable and Must Be Stopped
Monday evening, December 4th at George Washington University
A timely forum sponsored by The World Can’t Wait – Drive Out the Bush Regime, the Bush Crimes Commission, and the GWU Progressive Student Union featuring speakers:
Christopher Hedges – A journalist, theologian and author, who spent nearly two decades as a foreign correspondent for the New York Times, winning a Pulitzer Prize. Currently Lecturer in the Council of the Humanities, Princeton University. Author of “War Is a Force that Gives Us Meaning” and upcoming book “American Fascist.”
Ray McGovern – A retired 27-year veteran of the CIA, Ray is a co-founder of Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity. He will address the lies behind the war on Iraq, the dangers of war on Iran, and the true history of Secretary of Defense designate Robert Gates.
Rep. Cynthia McKinney – First African-American Congresswoman from Georgia and unstinting critic of the Bush administration policies, including the administration response to the fully predictable consequences of Hurricane Katrina.
Debra Sweet – National Coordinator of World Can’t Wait – Drive Out the Bush Regime and organizer of the nationwide anti-Bush actions of October 5.
The electoral defeat of the Republican majority in Congress revealed both the wide spread revulsion against the Bush Administration and the Iraq War . . . and, at the same time, the real danger that this will be quickly repackaged into tactical shifts in how the Iraq War is fought, betraying the people’s desire to end the war.
This is because the foundational elements and direction of the Bush program are either openly promoted, or left unspoken and untouched by the new Democratic Congressional leadership. This includes how it has carried out its whole program under the rubric of the War on Terror, the qualitative changes concerning civil liberties (including legitimizing torture, the Orwellian enemy combatant category, and the beginning elimination of habeas corpus), the abandonment of New Orleans, and the whole theocratic assault on abortion, homosexuality, science, and critical thought.
If ever there was a need for people to really understand deeply – and soon – the reality of the Bush program that we still confront, it is now, when wishful thinking is rampant.
