Commentary: Death Work

With an Attorney General who considers waterboarding legal, every
criminal confession, including a confession of a draft age young man
accused of shooting a draft age young football star, could be
waterboarded confession. It is appropriate to ask which civilian defense
workers will be laid off if the President does not get his $196 billion
for more war. Are they the makers of the waterboards? Of Tasers? Radio
wave guns? White phosphorus? Landmines? Cluster bombs? New bunker-busting
nuclear bombs?

Donald Rumsfeld has acknowledged that for at least two years the Pentagon
cannot account for $1 trillion in spending.* And we wonder why the
cheapening of the dollar, the rise in prices and mortgage rates, home
foreclosures and job loss!

Suggested message: SUPPORT OUR TROOPS! BRING THEM HOME! CONVERT THE
MILITARY BUDGET!
