Cynthia McKinney to Obama 'war criminal accessory': Immediate ceasefire, withdrawal, end drones
The Dallas Examiner ^ | November 25, 2009 | Deborah Dupre'

Posted on 11/28/2009 11:41:38 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

Former Congresswoman and U.S. Presidential Candidate (Green Party 2008), Cynthia McKinney, known for speaking truth to power, has again written to President Obama, this time with the subject headed: Please Bring Our Troops Home Now! (below)

Ray Songree of Kauia Truth and the Paul Revere Email Campaign wrote to his email list:

"Cynthia McKinney is one of the greatest heroines of our times. Very few elected officials have EVER spoke truth to power. That is all she does. There are many women on this email list. It really is your time to stand up and be heard, not as wannabe men, but as real real women, with all your hearts and souls and care and love. McKinney, like many on this email list, is a woman to be lauded, and I do!"

Following this links provides an example of what it means to be unafraid suggests Songtree: http://video.google.ca/videoplay?docid=-6708378013583808332&q=911#

Open Letter to Obama: Please Bring Out Troops Home Now!

By Cynthia McKinney

November 22, 2009

Mr. President:

I am 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.

Cynthia McKinney

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 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
53504-054
MCC-NY
150 Park Row
New York, NY 10007

I would suggest that Cynthia return to Georgia....hook up with some local political group...and restart her career as a Georgia representative. This international gameplan....isn’t doing much of anything for her career. The key thing is that no one in this administration is going to hire her for any job....so she’s made a complete fool out of herself...with no pay-off.

I don’t care about McKinney, she’s an idiot, but I have a bad feeling about our troops remaining on the battlefield while their commander threatens to turn them over to the Hague for prosecution if they actually fight.

Since Vietnam, it is a nightmare when Democrats try to run wars. As much as I hate to say so, I think it would be better if Obamsky did pull out of Afghanistan. Better to abstain then make a Big Mess out of it. People’s lives are on the line.

Oddly reminiscient of the imam asking/demanding the Queen of England to embrace Islam.

Maybe Cynthia McCoward would like to prostrate herself and become a prayer rug for those who would love nothing more than to kill us or enslave us but not this troop.

Just think of all the press she’d have gotten under a REPUBLICAN president for this?? She’d be the lead story on NBC, and get a sitdown with perky Katy at CBS.

Under a DEMOCRAT? Exactly nothing...

Why? This way, she gets to travel all over the place, have all her expenses paid, even make a few bucks on the side; and all she has to do is get up once in awhile and say some goofy sh*t.

The perfect racket.

This is exactly why, typically, at this point in Communist history, the useful idiots start getting killed. They outlive their usefulness and become a liability.

Terror cell? No, there's not enough money in it. Haven't you read about how cheap those bastards are? Why one of the Izzies that helped blow up the WTC in the 90s even tried going back to the rental agency to get the deposit back on the truck he blew up.

Cyndy isn't in this for ideology; she's crazy and she's used to getting money for nothing all of her life. She's trying to get along with her 'schtick', misplaced as it is. Some people will do anything for money - do you remember Pee Wee Herman?

It is not possible to be further to the left than Obama.

Yet McKinney accomplishes it.

Most impressive!

Not to mention the absurd rules of engagement there. Troop morale is already low and the court martial of the Seals for the bloody lip incident has to drive morale even lower than it already is.

I am afraid I have to concur. You cannot fight wars like this, with one hand tied behind your back. You either commit totally, or you pull out. There should be no room for half measures.

The classic useful idiot was one who followed the party line slavishly while not being part of the actual party structure—a foreign journalist with communist sympathies, for example. McKinney is not following the party line, therefore, she is not a classic “useful idiot”. She is a “true believer”.

And .. if McKinney divulged that information to Sheehan, SOMEBODY SHOULD ARREST McKINNEY FOR TREASON!!!
