I received the following email from the Progressive Democrats of America on 5/4/12 :
Take action against WAR!
Special Guest Michael Eisenscher
US Labor Against the War
Send Action Alerts to Congress
How is the war in Afghanistan going? Is there even any point to our Troops staying in harm's way? The truth is out. An active duty officer who regularly gets to all parts of Afghanistan says that the top brass is deceiving Congress and the American people with talk that things are going well. Congress has not reacted to this WhistleBlower; there have been no Congressional Hearings. The media is not covering these allegations. The Afghan people who are the most affected have no say.
But this truth-telling will be part of our next call on Tuesday, May 8. So watch the video before the call; spread this story to your own network. People need to have this information.
Tell the rest of us what you think of this WhistleBlower information on the PDA End War & Occupation Forum; this is where you can speak your mind and share your thoughts with others on this Issue Team.
