New Film on Drone Attacks in Afghanistan, "Silent Screams"
"Waking from a dream as she slept comfortably in a remote Kurdish village in Northeastern Iran, Karla Hansen stared wide-eyed at the ceiling. Across the border in Afghanistan, unmanned aerial vehicles (drones), controlled by American pilots sitting in front of video screens inside the U.S. were dropping bombs on the poorest of Afghanistan’s poor. Hundreds of children, beautiful children, like those who welcomed her every day during her visit to Iran, had already perished. On that night, Hansen made a promise to herself. She would make a film to document the effects of the drones through the eyes of innocent children and families with no place left to run." -- From the website of the new documentary "Silent Screams"
The producer is asking concerned citizens to please submit Silent Screams to air on Public Access Television channels with this link to the Indemnification and Authorization release form signed by Director/Producer Karla Hansen.
"[Killiing by drones] is so cruel as to be beyond the pale of human tolerance." ~Senior British judge Lord Bingham of Cornill
"this unlawful program fits the academic defiinition of 'terrorism.' Drone attacks are unlawful, indiscriminately kill civilians, create fear and are ideologically driven for a political goal." ~Carl Herman, LA County Nonpartisan Examiner
