Activist Interrupts War Propaganda ‘What About the Innocent People WE Are Killing With OUR Drone Strikes?’

Peace Activist Medea Benjamin of Code Pink interrupted White House counterterrorism adviser John Brennan during a press conference about the progress of the war in Afghanistan last week.

When Brennan was espousing the notion that Al Qaeda’s image is badly tarnished around the Muslim world because he claims they’re killing mostly “innocent men, women and children,” Benjamin stood up and challenged him.

Benjamin shouted “What about the hundreds of innocent people we are killing with our drone strikes in Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia?”
