No Brennan for the CIA!

Jan 11, 2013

Dear Dr. Olga M.,

 Drones. Kill List. Terror Tuesdays. Assassination Czar.

These are all things that we associate with John Brennan, Obama's chief counterterrorism adviser, who is the mastermind behind the administration's deadly drone program. That's 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 Brennan's nomination or, at the very least, ask tough questions during his confirmation hearings about both Brennan and the CIA's 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 Benjamin's article John Brennan vs. a Sixteen-Year-Old Boy.

Brennan's nomination represents an opportunity for a long-overdue evaluation of America's 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. Let's seize it!

Onward towards a world free of lethal drones,
Alli, Holly, Jodie, Lachelle, Laura, Medea, Nancy K, Nancy M, Sam, and Tighe

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.
