Major US war criminals, including Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, and John Yoo will descend on NYC for the 10th anniversary of 9/11.
These are the people who brought us torture, indefinite detention, and trillion-dollar wars that have claimed countless Afghani, Iraqi and US lives. They should be indicted and prosecuted for their crimes, not honored as speakers and special guests at symposia, memorials and fancy dinners. The brutality of the “war on terror” and the US wars of aggression are condemned both by the courtof global public opinion and by international law, including the Geneva Conventions and the Convention against Torture.
People of conscience must insist on accountability for the actions of U.S. officials.
