Letter to the President From Former Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney

Letter to the President From Former Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney

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 http://www.endUSwars.org , currently under construction.

P.S. President Obama's Department of Justice, unlike President
Clinton's that refused to even prosecute, just took Lynne Stewart to
prison and is trying to extend her sentence from 28 months to 3O
years. Please take a moment and write a letter of encouragement to
Lynne Stewart, the people's attorney, who is now Prisoner #53504-054 at MCC-NY. Her address is:

Lynne Stewart
150 Park Row
New York, NY 10007
