No Brennan for the CIA!
Jan 11, 2013
Drones. Kill List. Terror Tuesdays. Assassination Czar.
These are all things that we associate with John Brennan, Obamaís chief counterterrorism adviser, who is the mastermind behind the administrationís deadly drone program. Thatís why we were shocked when President Obama nominated Brennan to head the CIA.
Please join us
in urging the Senators on the Intelligence Committee to
reject John Brennanís nomination or, at the very least, ask tough questions during his confirmation hearings about both Brennan and the CIAís profligate use of drones. Let us know what you think they should ask, and we will deliever the message.
This secret, unaccountable drone program has expanded dramatically at the behest of John Brennan. If appointed director of the CIA, Brennan will have even more power. Learn more about this dangerous prospect in CODEPINK co-founder Medea Benjaminís article John Brennan vs. a Sixteen-Year-Old Boy.
Brennanís nomination represents an opportunity for a long-overdue evaluation of Americaís drone policy, a counterproductive policy that has fueled anti-American sentiment and led to the death of thousands of people in countries where we are not at war.
We have a chance to force a serious evaluation of John Brennan and killer drones. Letís seize it!
Onward towards a world free of lethal drones,
P.S. If you live in the Washington DC/Virginia area, join us in front of John Brennan's house on Tuesday, January 15th, for a candlelight vigil to commemorate the children that have been killed by drone strikes. For more information, email Lachelle.
