CODEPINK: Pakistani Community Holding Vigil Outside Embassy

Ambassador Sherry Rehman addressing the use of Drones – Washington DC

In light of the decision to delay John Brennan’s confirmation as CIA Director and the call by Congress for the administration to release the missing legal opinions about targeted killings, CODEPINK organized a week of actions to show the growing opposition to killer drones with members of the Pakistani community.

“Finally, more and more Americans are waking up to the fact that our drones have been killing thousands of people who we can’t even identify, fueling new recruits for extremists groups and jeopardizing our national security,” says CODEPINK cofounder Medea Benjamin. “If we have any sense of morality, if we care about international law, if we believe in the values of a democratic society, we have to speak out against the monstrous killer drone program that John Brennan has concocted.”
