Who is David Petraeus? The commander of U.S. Central Command, in charge of the wars in the Middle East and Central Asia. The main military architect of the troop "surge." He is responsible for torture. Under his command, pilotless drones rain down mass murder of civilians from the skies over Afghanistan and Pakistan. No amount of slick P.R. packaging can render him anything better than a war criminal.
Go here for a War Criminals Watch listing:
and here for a Petraeus "Wanted" poster (and many other war criminals’ posters) ready to print:
Come to the protest. Be counted, be part of the people who take responsibility for stopping the crimes of their government. The world can’t wait.
In the case of this expanding, escalating war in Afghanistan, the mass media is almost universally a huge blanket of lies and ignorance, so that most Americans simply have NO idea of the crimes now being done in their name. This is not a situation to be tolerated! You can take action in the next five minutes to help change this.
Read these short articles, and watch this YouTube interview with air raid victim Najibullah (yes, victims of the U.S. War OF Terror have names, faces, families!). Then forward them to your entire address book. Tonight, print out the FACT SHEET to pass out at work or school tomorrow to invite conversations with people you know – who need to know what you now know.
See you at the General Petraeus protest on June 9th – and the "Torture Judge" Bybee action on June 14th (see sidebar)!
