Die „Authorization For Use of Military Force“ vom 14. September 2001 im Wortlaut

(29. August 2014)

Die nach den Attentaten vom 11. September in den Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika dem Präsidenten vom Kongress persönlich ausgestellte Vollmacht, der ein nun fast dreizehn Jahre andauernder weltweiter Terrorkrieg a.k.a. „war on terror“ folgte, ist in Deutschland immer noch weithin unbekannt.

Radio Utopie dokumentiert dieses in jeder Hinsicht verheerende historische Ermächtigungsgesetz im Wortlaut.

NEW: A national survey from @UMDPublicPolicy found that majorities of Democrats AND Republicans favor repealing the 2001 #AUMF. That authorization has been abused for years. It is far past time Congressional war powers be restored.

Libya, Syria, Somalia and Yemen: Calculating the Millions-High Death Toll of America’s Post-9/11 Wars

(26.4.2018)

As Barbara Lee presciently warned her colleagues before she cast her lone dissenting vote in 2001, we have “become the evil we deplore.” But these wars have not been accompanied by fearsome military parades (not yet) or speeches about conquering the world. Instead they have been politically justified by “information warfare” to demonize enemies and fabricate crises, and then waged in a “disguised, quiet, media free” way, to hide their cost in human blood from the American public and the world.

After 16 years of war, about 6 million violent deaths, 6 countries utterly destroyed and many more destabilized, it is urgent that the American public come to terms with the true human cost of our country’s wars and how we have been manipulated and misled into turning a blind eye to them – before they go on even longer, destroy more countries, further undermine the rule of international law and kill millions more of our fellow human beings.

It’s been three years since Julian Assange was imprisoned. Advocates say it’s time to let him go

The 50-year-old Australian was dragged from London’s Ecuador Embassy on 11 April 2019 to face extradition to the United States on espionage charges over WikiLeaks‘ release of confidential US military records and diplomatic cables.

He has since been held at a high-security prison in Belmarsh, southeast of London, and last month married attorney and long-term partner Stella Moris from within the walls.
