WASHINGTON, D.C. (June 29, 2012) – Please find below an interview and an article recently published by The Bureau of Investigative Journalism, a non-profit organization funded by the Potter Foundation, and dedicated to raising the standard of journalism through high quality investigative reporting.
In an interview with the Bureau, Democrat Kucinich voices withering criticism of US clandestine operations in Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia, saying that America has found itself ‘running a killing bureaucracy.’
Kucinich told the Bureau that he believed the U.S. may in effect be at war with Pakistan, given that its ‘ally’ has demanded that drone strikes on its territory stop.
In recent months Pakistan has loudly protested each drone strike, calling them a ‘total contravention of international law’ which are a ‘violation of its territorial integrity and sovereignty.’
You can see this article and the full interview with Congressman Kucinich here and here.
Congressman Kucinich recently led a bipartisan group of 26 members in writing to the President challenging the use of drone strikes abroad.
