Transcript: Cynthia McKinney's Speech In Germany

Needless to say, this speech wasn't carried by any US media. Had an ex-Congressperson given a spech in Germany, any ex-Congressperson, supporting the wars in Iraq, Afghanistan and soon Iran, it would have been broadcast on every station and written about in every publication and on every mainstream web site on the internet.

It's appalling, horrendous and criminal, our support of war.

War and the Economy:
We Must Take our Countries Back


We can’t give in and we can’t give up



Thank you for allowing me to come from the United States and participate in this rally for peace.


My country has been hijacked by a criminal cabal intent on using the hard-earned dollars of the American people for war, occupation, and empire.


As a result, the national leadership of my country, both Democratic and Republican, became complicit in war crimes, torture, crimes against humanity, and crimes against the peace.


As a Member of Congress from the Democratic Party, I drafted Articles of Impeachment against George Bush, Dick Cheney, and Condoleezza Rice. Later, when Democrats voted to support more war rather than take care of the needs of the people, I declared my independence from them and all national leadership; the Green Party nominated me to run for President, which I did on a platform of truth, justice, peace, and dignity.


I watched as Candidate Barack Obama came here to Germany to speak. I saw tears on the faces of many in the crowd who believed that, finally, there was something worth believing in again. That America had turned a page from its evil playbook that had so outraged and disappointed the world. That good was finally about to triumph over evil.


I know that beleaguered people all over the world, victims of cruel and deadly military, economic, imperial policies finally could believe in hope and change. And America could be believed in again.


Everywhere I went all over the world there were pictures of Barack Obama, slogans “Yes, We Can,” and the words “Hope” and “Change” plastered everywhere.


And after eight years of George W. Bush, Barack Obama seemed to be the man the world was waiting for.


So when the Candidate became the President, we held our breath in anticipation.


That torture and rendition; spying on innocent, dissenting Americans; war and occupation; crimes against the U.S. Constitution and crimes against the peace would end and that the United States would finally join the community of nations.


Sadly, one year into the Presidency of Barack Obama, that is not the case.


On our front door step we have witnessed U.S. complicity in the overthrow of President Zalaya in Honduras and the hostile takeover of Haiti by 20,000 troops with guns sent in when the devastated people needed food, doctors, and heavy lifting equipment.


President Obama is expanding U.S. troop presence in Colombia, threatening the people’s gains in Venezuela, Bolivia, Ecuador, Cuba, and Nicaragua.


President Obama has drones killing innocent people in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Yemen, and Somalia. And Administration lawyers are trying to figure out how to legally kill U.S. citizens. You even have U.S. assassination teams on German soil!


Sadly, President Obama is guilty of every item I cited in my Articles of Impeachment against President Bush.


Both Tony Blair and President Obama justify war in Afghanistan by citing the tragedy of the September 11th attacks in New York and on the Pentagon. But my government has not told the truth about what really happened that day. Just like they lied to start a war against Iraq.


So what are we to do? Let us work together on behalf of truth, justice, peace, and dignity. I will struggle in the U.S. and I will struggle with you:


Not one more dime for war.
