Talk by Richard Becker. While there continue to be unanswered questions about the official story of 9-11, what is clear are the devastating impacts of this decade of war on the people of Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan and the non-wealthy citizens of this country. Although President Obama and other top officials talk about “progress” and “draw down,” Afghan civilian and U.S. military casualties are at the highest levels yet, and the war in Afghanistan alone costs $330,000,000 per day. Join us for a presentation and discussion of these disasters and what we can do now.
Richard Becker is Western Region Coordinator of the ANSWER Coalition, author of the book Palestine, Israel and the U.S. Empire, and an activist. He is a regular contributor to the http://www.pslweb.org website, writing on the Middle East, the economy and other subjects.
