Press Release: March 14, 2012
For Immediate Release
US presidential candidate Anisa Abd is Fattah is calling for an immediate US troop withdrawal from Afghanistan and an end to the so called war on terrorism. Her call for immediate withdrawal is based upon a series of actions by US military on the ground in Afghanistan, indicating the US Pentagon has either lost interest in the day to day conduct of the so called war in Afghanistan, or the troops are simply no longer under the control of the Pentagon.
“A spate of unfortunate and tragic events that not only cost the lives of innocent civilian Afghan citizens, but also seriously jeopardizes US military personnel, and that violate international law have taken place in Afghanistan” said Abd el Fattah. “The Quran burning incident, the recent massacre of more than 16 Afghan citizens, all killed while sleeping, mostly woman and children, is a clear indication that the US Pentagon has lost control of this war and apparently have also lost control of the troops on the ground,” she added.
Abd el Fattah stated, “This war has gone on for too long and with no clear or obtainable mission. This is obviously having a very negative effect on our troops, many who are on their third or fourth deployment to Afghanistan. We are asking our soldiers and Marines to do the impossible and it is time for this to end. There is no victory to be had in Afghanistan, only more misery for the Afghan people, our troops and our country. Add to this that we can no longer afford this misadventure. It is costing us too much money and too much US credibility.”
The Abd el Fattah campaign, which is also being called an American Uprising and a movement, plans to contact the various committees in Congress that have oversight over the Armed Forces and the Pentagon, requesting that an exhaustive investigation of the Qur’an burring incident, the massacre and the seeming attempt to cover up facts related to the massacre be conducted, seeking to determine if in fact the so called war on terrorism is still under US Pentagon control and accomplishing anything. The campaign will also initiate a call in the form of a petition drive, for the US to immediately end the controversial US war on terrorism.
