A Call to Police & Military to Defend the Constitution

As the second non-Arab American ever indicted on the Patriot Act, I tell you straight up, it can happen to you.

They hit me with secret charges, secret evidence and secret grand jury testimony. They locked me up on Carswell Air Force Base without a Trial or guilty plea.  I was terrified when my demands for a hearing got denied. The military police refused to allow my Uncle, acting as my attorney, to enter Carswell Air Force Base, so I could plan my defense strategy. On the third try, U.S. Marshals were required to flank my Uncle/Attorney at the gates to the base with the Judge on stand by in his courtroom, in order to gain admission to see me.

It was unConstitutional as hell.

They did it to me, regardless of the fact that I love the values of our Country deeply. They did it to me, regardless of the fact that I was dedicated to protecting our society from violence and terrorism. They did it to me, regardless of the fact that I am a passionate activist and fully capable of fighting to defend myself.

I was the first. I will not be the last.  We’ve got to put our country back on track right now.

Or it’s over for all of us.

    What happened to Valerie Plame was terrible. What happened to Sibel Edmonds was despicable. What happened to Susan Lindauer was the most abominable travesty of justice that involves us all. Moreover, Plame had Joe Wilson (former U.S. Ambassador) to fight for her. Edmonds had the light of bureaucracy and the spotlight for remedy and recourse to varying degrees to fight the injustice. Lindauer had nothing. Now ask yourself what you do have?

    Now ask yourself this. Why isn’t Susan Lindauer on the National Whistle-Blowers Coalition? Here is a woman who tried to avert this nation from going to war with pre-Iraqi intelligence tasked by an officer of the CIA. Intelligence that showed how our nation was determined to go into an unjust war. Plame and Edmonds, though tragic, was nothing but collateral damage and coverup.

    Sibel and Valerie, where are you for Susan?

    Thank you to Shamar Thomas for your courage. We need more people like you to stand up for the rights of our citizens in a peaceful and gracious way. Keep up the good work!

    When we all start acting with a level of respect and empathy we will not act with violence against those that could just as easily be our friends and family. Hear their voices and give them their freedom of speech that our fore founders gave us in our constitution. Start speaking with each other.
