WeAreChange sponsors a talk given by Cindy Sheehan.
Today, Cindy Sheehan organized a protest out in front of CIA Headquarters to protest the illegal drone bombings taking place. Afterwards, we went to Dick Cheney's house to deliver this.
Recently, it has been discovered that "Insane Hussein" that posts at my personal psyop, "Hussein," that posted at truthaction.org, "kameelyun," and Adam Syed are all one and the same. Should individuals who participate in this practice be tolerated?
According to wiki, a "sockpuppet" is "an online identity used for purposes of deception within an online community."
For Immediate Release
January 8, 2010
It is with utter disbelief that we listen to the unfolding details of the attempted December 25, 2009 terrorist attack of Delta Flight 253.
Let us remind you, on September 11, 2001, 19 terrorists managed to evade all security measures, hijack four commercial airliners, slam them into three buildings and a field in Pennsylvania, killing 2,976 innocent people, including our husbands.
We responded by strenuously lobbying for an independent investigation to find out how on earth so many agencies could have failed in their duties to protect us, and our loved ones, from such an attack. We asked that they find and fix the loopholes that existed, in order to safeguard our nation.
Terrorism is real. It can be scary. However, I think we need to look at what causes terrorism. Like wars of aggression against 3 countries for instance... Terrorism is real. Unfortunately, we are the greatest purveyors of it.

NEW YORK – They huddled in the winter shadows and the frigid air, this group of wounded veterans of Ground Zero, some of them leaning on canes or walkers, some breathing from oxygen tanks.
The father of James Zadroga is hugged by Bill Maher, of Maywood. Then, they read the list of names of the dead — all of them rescue workers and other volunteers who rushed, like them, into that smoldering place of terror on that sunny September morning eight years ago and breathed in too many toxins.
So far, that death list has 103 names but it will probably grow in the years to come.
There was Felix Hernandez. And Sandra Adrian. And Robert Grossman. And, finally, James Zadroga, the North Arlington kid who became a New York City police detective and then volunteered more than 400 hours at the Ground Zero clean up.
Four years ago yesterday, Zadroga took his last breath, his lungs blackened and clogged with Ground Zero’s dust and junk. He was only 34.

PROTEST AGAINST CIA DRONE ATTACKS COMING TO LANGLEY, VIRGINIA
"Every one of these dead non-combatants represents an alienated family, a new revenge feud, and more recruits for a militant movement
that has grown exponentially even as drone strikes have increased." - David Kilcullen (Counterinsurgency Expert) Center for New American Security
On January 16th, 2010 from 1pm to 4pm activists will descend upon the home of the Central Intelligence Agency in Langley, Virginia to protest the immoral, illegal and inhumane use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs - also known as "drones".) Speaking at this event will be:
- Cindy Sheehan (world renowned American anti-war/peace activist and nobel peace prize nominee)
I don't know what the story is regarding what happened over the weekend with Flight 253. I would like to know who the person described here is. - Jon

They didn't find that out until early Christmas morning 2009, eight years later, when the firefighter's lungs finally overfilled with fluids, the side-effects of pancreatic cancer inflicted on him by the toxic dust he swallowed in hundreds of hours at Ground Zero.
Ryan answered the call of duty on 9/11, then went beyond, returning to the blasted ground for months. First, he hunted survivors, then victims, then just fragments of people - his FDNY brothers among them - whose lives and bodies were shattered that day.
I hooked up John and Marina, so this is very cool. - Jon
