ZERO DARK THIRTY
What's wrong with the CIA's World View?
What happened on 9/11/01 in New York City was a horror.
The forces that attacked the World Trade Center are totally reactionary.
BUT – what was done by the U.S. in the name of 9/11 – whether justified
by “safety,” “justice,” or simple revenge – turned out to be a far worse horror:
• Hundreds of thousands of people were killed– and millions more turned into refugees – in the
U.S. war against Iraq (a country which was not even
connected to 9/11).
• Tens of thousands were killed in Afghanistan,
Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, and other countries.
• A worldwide network of CIA torture sites
run by the U.S. – including, but not limited to,
Guantanamo – was built, and a system of indefinite
detention without trial put in place through law and
executive orders by Bush and Obama.
• Stripping of fundamental rights within
the U.S., giving the state virtually unlimited power to
spy on people’s personal communications and lives, and to
hold people without trial and – if the President deems it
necessary – to kill people without trial in targeted
Popular culture is further brutalized and degraded by the celebration and
justification of torture – as in the film “Zero Dark Thirty.”
There were people in the wake of 9/11 – including some who had lost loved
ones at the WTC – who declared “NOT IN OUR NAME.” That captures
our sentiment now.
We do not share
the CIA’s view of the world.
End these wars now, and stop torture
