What Religious Leaders Want to Tell Obama on Easter


Dear Friend --

In 2012 I traveled to Pakistan to investigate how drone strikes were impacting Pakistani citizens. Upon my arrival, it became clear that President Obama's drone strike policy is gravely impacting our national security because innocent civilians witness the unprovoked killing of brothers, sisters, wives, husbands, sons, and daughters. Furthermore, the Obama administration has continuously tried to redefine Just War Theory in order to justify its drone policy. Therefore, in my most recent video, I asked religious leaders from across the country to join together during the week of Easter to call on President Obama to reexamine his position on drone strikes.

"For me, as a Catholic priest I urge Americans to ask 'Is this the country we wish to be and is this the type of people we have become?'" said Franciscan Friar Joe Nangle. "How can we hold our heads high when remote-controlled, killer aircraft-like drones are raining death and destruction on populations half a world away from our borders -- on women, men, and children who pose no threat to our safety and well-being"
