Government Says Using All Political - Legal Channels for Dr. Aafia's Release


ABDUL B.A. WAHEED ABDULLAH Ask Questions Re: Aafia Siddiqui — My heart bled when I read the news of American soldiers killing Afghan civilian for sport.We have not yet recovered from the shock of Abu Ghraib. Now comes the news of another savagery by the American forces in another occupied Muslim country. We can draw two occlusions: Either American forces are not under proper command or they know they can do anything and get away with it (meaning they do everything with official connivance).Now let us place the fabricated crimes of Dr. Aafia Siddiqui’s against the real crimes of American forces in Iraq and Afghanistan. Siddiqui gets 86 years in prison. What about those involved in Abu Ghraib depravities and those US troops killing Afghans for fun? They may get medals for bravery if downing of Iran Air flight is anything to go by.I have worked with Americans and admire them for their fairness and openness. What has gone wrong with a nation known for its openness, civilized culture, commitment to justice and freedom?President Barack Obama says, “America is not at war with Islam.” Such platitudes are not enough. He should do more to improve the image of America. The first step in this direction should be the release of Dr. Aafia Siddiqui.

Keep Going to Free Aafia dot Org (Official Aafia Siddiqui Site), Cage Prisoners dot com, ondelette and more on this site below. Be sure to SIGN PETITIONARY LETTER named below.

Now, let's turn our hearts and minds toward those so devastated by the floods...
