Update on Najaf - Hold Kerry Accountable!



Today, Voices in the Wilderness held a protest outside the Kerry headquarters -

Flashpoints interviewed Jeff Leys, one of the protestors, who has spent time in Iraq, he said:

"we are trying to get Kerry to issue a call for the US to cease immediately military operations in Iraq, in particular in Najaf, and to withdraw forces from Najaf...we have attempted over a couple of days for Kerry to issue such a statement, and have been met with silence by Kerry thus far...

Interviewer: people say Kerry, no matter what....

Jeff Leys:...it is critical to hold Kerry accountable right now because if we do not hold Kerry accountable, the war in Iraq is going to continue...

Kerry has moral and ethical obligations to speak out against this war, and if he cannot do so in a manner to protect the holy sites of one of the major religions of the world, then Kerry does not in any way shape or form deserve the support of progressives in this country..."
