I'm encouraged by the OccupyWallStreet's slogan: "The Revolution continues worldwide," to bring the following information to your attention, seeking your help in righting the wrongs of the Obama administration's foreign policies related to a young African nation of Eritrea.
Recently released Wikileaks cable on Eritrea's larger neighbor Ethiopia exposes how Ethiopian security forces planted 3 bombs that went off in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa on September 16, 2006 and then blamed neighboring Eritrea for the blasts in a case that raises serious questions about the Obama administration's latest push for United Nation's sanctions against Eritrea based on these lies. (Read: Ethiopia Bombs Itself, Blames Eritrea http://www.foreignpolicyjournal.com/2011/09/16/wikileaks-ethiopia-files-ethiopia-bombs-itself-blames-eritrea/ )
In a report from 2006 marked “Secret ; Subject: Ethiopia: Recent Bombings Blamed on Oromos Possibly the Work of Government of Ethiopia” “Classified By: Charge [d’Affairs] Vicki Huddleston”, “An embassy source, as well as clandestine reporting, suggests that the bombing may have in fact been the work of the Government of Ethiopia security forces.” (Cable reference id: #06ADDISABABA2708.) http://wikileaks.org/cable/2006/10/06ADDISABABA2708.html
The Wikileaks report goes on, “a typically reliable information source” who “contacted Post to report that” the bodies of three men found at the bomb sites “had been picked up by police a week prior, kept in detention and tortured. He said police then left the men in a house and detonated explosives nearby, killing 3 of them.”
The Obama administration through the US ambassador to the UN, Susan Rice, is now pushing for crippling economic sanctions against the people of Eritrea for crimes the neighboring regime in Ethiopia has committed against it's own people.
I hereby urge all peace and justice loving people around the world to sign a petition asking the Obama administration to stop imposing sanctions against an innocent country and people. Your signature can save the lives of 5 million people. I thank you very much. God bless you.
Please sign the petition here. (Thank you)
