Active Duty Whistleblower Lt. Col Davis - US Deceiving Public on Afghan War

Join the End Wars and Occupations Call on May 8th

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.

this is sad ... lets bring our troopers home ... i don't hate the men and women in our army and never have ... i'm so proud of these brave people , but can we not give love and peace a chance to grow . we have so many inactive bases arround the world , why are these in afganistan so un fundeded ( troops or supplies) , if we want to leave and have a diplomatic solution , why do these peple have to risk their lives (and waste taxpayer money) , to do nothing . americia loves their soldiers , it's the leaders we are not so confident in . oboma might have started a with-draw , but can it be done sooner , and who is stopping it .

GOP Blocks Equal Pay...again.

Just in time for election season, Senate Republicans blocked legislation aimed at closing the gender pay gap. For the third time since 2012, Republicans refused to allow debate on the Paycheck Fairness Act, and reminded women that the GOP doesn't believe in equal pay for equal work.
