Leafletting outside Aung San Suu Ky talk in DC

Today I leafletted and bannered outside a speech by the great human rights activist and Nobel Peace Prize winner Aung San Suu Ky. She spoke at the museum for journalism called the Newseum in DC.

It was organized by Amnesty International. I had been notified most likely because I had sent emails on behalf of Georgia death row prisoner, Troy Davis, killed by Georgia about a year ago even though he was innocent.

Very few people refused to take the one eighth page leaflet. The leaflet included the title of my blog, which was also what I put on the banner, HumanRightsBeginsAtHome.blogspot.com. I also included on the leaflet the title of my article Sad Irony involving the great Aung San Suu Ky.

Three busloads of students came from New York.

A cameraman from Amnesty had me speak into the camera. I requested AI contact me.

I had worked with them during Torture Accountability Action Day in DC a few years ago. They. like most progressives, were hostile to 911 truth.

Eventually I realized a good line to use to give out my flier was," For Human Rights." One woman said, "Aren't you in the wrong country?" I said " That's exactly why I need to be here."

My favorite comment was from a man walking down the street next to a woman who said in response to my " For Human Rights," remark," She beats me all the time."

Sad Irony involving the great Aung San Suu Ky

It is a sad irony that the great Aung Sang Suu Ky should be used to bring honor to a nation like our own that looks the other way as our own human rights are being eviscerated.

* The "war on terror" has justified an inexorable march to tyranny.

* Within the past decade the 800-year-old right to habeas corpus has been eliminated.

* The detailed USA PATRIOT Act was introduced too soon after 9/11 not to have been prepared long before that catastrophe.

The Executive Branch has assumed the right to indefinitely hold without trial -- or assassinate -- anyone it asserts is connected with terror.

There has been an unprecedented use of the Espionage Act to prosecute whistle-blowers, and a refusal to prosecute torturers

The former secretary of the Department of Homeland Security makes a pretty penny on the airport machines which make sure none of us are carrying explosives onto an airplane

Without 9/11/01 as a rationale -- without a "New Pearl Harbor" -- this process could not have started or proceeded.

Nevertheless, every major institution in the country refuses to ask the hardest questions about the central political event of our time, 9/11.

Did you know the lead investigator for the government admitted in a public press conference in 2008 that the third tower, which wasn't hit by a plane, came down at free fall acceleration for at least 100 feet? This is all that is needed to be conclusive that explosives were used and the official story cannot be believed.

Failure to address this statement backed by Newton's Laws is failure to acknowledge junior-high-school-level physics.

Apparently most leading American activists concerned with justice, human rights, and peace believe they can plead ignorance to junior-high-level-physics.

George Orwell said, “Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.”

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle said, "Once you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth."

Mark Twain said, "It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so. "

If you have doubts about all this, I'll be glad to have a private, civil conversation with you about the evidence. It IS understandable that it can take a while for someone to accept the fact that American politicians could be THAT evil.
