Kudos Ms. Benjamin!
I've got a ditty for you. It goes:
BOMBED BY THE USA! THEY WERE BOMBED BY THE USA!
to be sung as the names of the countries that have been attacked by the u.s. are flashed and shouted out. (Hope Bruce Springsteen doesn't object to the use of the tune.)
MORE PEOPLE NEED TO PUBLICLY SPEAK OF THESE SYSTEMATIC GLOBAL AND DOMESTIC KILLINGS AND TORTURES ESP THE CIA AND FBI "HIT LISTS" THAT HOUSES THOUSANDS UPON THOUSANDS OF FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC TARGETED NAMES. TRAGICALLY OUR GOVERNMENT'S MILITARY AND INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES HAVE BECOME THEMSELVES EXACTLY WHAT THEY WERE INITIALLY SUPPOSE TO BE FIGHTING AND PROTECTING US AGAINST - WITHOUT ANY EFFECTIVE OVERSIGHT NOR LEGAL OR FINANCIAL RESTRAINTS. MILITARISM HAS DOMINATED OUR THINKING AND ACTIONS IN THE U.S.! SINCE 9/11, THERE HAVE BEEN A SIGNIFICANT INCREASE IN INNOCENT TARGETED PERSONS BEING ADDED TO THESE VERY DANGEROUS LISTS OF WHICH THEIR NAMES WILL NEVER BE PERMANENTLY REMOVED FROM - EVEN IF INVESTIGATIONS EVENTUALLY ARE PROVEN FOUL AND IN MANY CASES OF DOMESTIC TORTURE NO INVESTIGATION IS EVEN REQUIRED THANKS TO THE PATRIOT ACT WHICH PROVIDES THE LEGAL AUTHORIZATION OF A LOT OF THESE NEW WORLD ORDER AND WAR CRIME ACTIONS.
WHERE'S THE OUTCRY FROM THE MEDIA? WHERE'S THE PROTECTIONS FROM THE DEPT OF JUSTICE? WHERE'S THE COURAGE AND OUTCRY FROM THE UN? WHERE'S THE OVERSIGHT FROM MILITARY AND INTELLIGENCE CONGRESSIONAL SPECIAL COMMITTEES? WHERE'S THE DEPT OF DEFENSE'S OVERSIGHT? WHERE'S OBAMA ON ALL THESE WARS, KILLINGS AND TORTURES?....WELL IT APPEARS TO ME THAT HE'S RIGHT AT THE FOREFRONT APPROVING AND AUTHORIZING ALL OF IT! REALLY SCARY WHAT AMERICA IS BECOMING....WARS, TORTURE, TERRORIZING, DRONES, “HIT LISTS”, COINTELPRO, INVOLUNTARY HUMAN EXPERIMENTATION, ORGANIZED STALKING & ELECTRONIC HARASSMENT.
Here are a couple of free documentaries that illustrate some of Benneta's positions. There is some media attention it is just not the mainstream commercial media.
Episode: The Interrogator
September 13, 2011: "The Interrogator" and an encore of "Are We Safer?"
Episode: Top Secret America
FRONTLINE reveals 9/11's unprecedented yet largely invisible legacy: the creation of a vast maze of clandestine government and private agencies designed to hunt terrorists and prevent future attacks on the U.S.
Anyone who has researched the "Project for a New American Century" or "Defense Planning Guidance", or the "Bush Doctrine-National Security Strategy", or the "Wolfowitz Doctrine" will know what is the US agenda for the remainder of this century.

Its fine to protest, necessary even, so that the world may know where many of the American people stand--we are not all arrogant, blood thirsty patriots. Many of us are peace loving, fair minded humanitarians who love, seek and demand justice. The world needs to see that, they get that when we protest. Nonetheless, the protests will not affect any change as far as I can see. Remember how the country turned out in protest when Bush stole the election (for reasons that research of the aforementioned documents makes very clear), the nation protested but it didn't change anything. Our government do not care what its citizens or the rest of the world think anymore, the US is the sole bully of the world and of its citizens now. Bush got in there and did what he was selected to do and there is no turning back it seems. By the way, former president Clinton isn't innocent either; but Obama apparently has signed on to the program and is proving every day that he is the man to continue the legacy of Regan and the Bushs and fulfil the doctrines of evil.
Protest we must, but we should also be very clear that the agenda for war and oppression is set, our government will not be deterred. When the protests gain real momentum we can expect that many of us will die at the hands of our government. It is a new day in America, USA and it doesn't matter who gets elected or selected for president--Republican, Democrat, black or white,male or female--its etched in stone, the military build up will continue at our expense, we will remain at war bombing other countries, assasinating and intimidating their leaders--this is what we are voting for in essence--which man are we electing to be in charge of the terrorism against the whole world. "its on" as they say.
