Don't Stand By as the Wars 'Drone' On
Seven years ago today I resigned from the U.S.
government in opposition to the Bush administration's war on Iraq.
I had worked for the State Department for sixteen years
and had been in the Army and Army Reserves for 29 years. I
was one of three U.S. diplomats who resigned over the Bush
administration's decision to invade and occupy Iraq and one of tens if
not hundreds of thousands of government employees that knew the war on
Iraq would jeopardize our national security, not improve it.
