7180. THE TRUTH ABOUT MURDER DRONES
But we have a BOLD hard-hitting plan to bring these drone killings into U.S. living rooms.
To this point, U.S. drones have taken over 7,180 lives in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen and Somali; no tally has been kept of drone assassinations in the other countries engulfed in war – Iraq, Syria and Libya. These killings, as you know, violate international law requiring due process and a variety of principles established in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, signed by the U.S. after World War II.
And these killings, quite understandably, are a major factor generating hatred against the U.S. and determination to kill Americans. This is a point underscored by former U.S. drone operators in a 2015 letter to President Obama and the head of the Central Intelligence Agency.
But we can help stop the insanity. We have produced television commercials – to run on CNN, MSNBC and other networks – to tell the truth to the American people.
And, you can help stop this lawless drone killing that not only kills and traumatizes overseas but contributes to sense within the U.S. that people can take it upon themselves to act as judge, jury and executioner.
Please contribute to placing this commercial on television networks around the U.S., particularly those in communities such as Las Vegas and Syracuse, NY, which are near major U.S. drone control centers.
We have been given a $10,000 matching grant to do this. Please contribute now to help us meet that grant, and to get this campaign underway. It's a matter of life. And death.
