Mr. President: Stop Immoral #Drone Strikes - #drones


On Sept 14, 2001, Congress passed the Authorization for Use of Military Force, freeing the president to send drones into Pakistan or other countries.  Opponents of this despicable policy claim hundreds of civilians have been killed, despite denials by the administration.  In its protest of nominee John Brennan as head of the CIA, Code Pink brought a list of names of victims, many of them children.  We are Being Lied To Yet Again!

That's why I signed a petition to The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Barack Obama, which says:

"Let's help Rep. Barbara Lee of Oakland, the only member of congress who voted against it, in her call to repeal the Authorization for Use of Military Force; demand that the president acknowledge the deaths of civilians; and stop drone attacks now."
