Mr. Obama, Tear Down This Wall of Hypocrisy on International Law


President Obama has denounced Russia for a “breach of international law” with its military intervention in the Crimea.

The Russian intervention deserves criticism. But let’s be clear.
The message from the White House is: Do as we say, not as we do.
Background:
Tribune:  European Parliament Condemns Drone Strikes
Reprieve:  Investigation of Drones
Robert Parry:  America’s Staggering Hypocrisy
Katrina vanden Heuvel:  Ukraine Crisis Calls for Less Bluster
Norman Solomon:  Heard the One About Obama Denouncing a Breach?

The U.S. government routinely violates international law with drone strikes in Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia and other countries. Human-rights groups like Reprieve have documented many of those violations in recent reports, and the European Parliament has just condemned the practice as illegal -- but the USA’s missile attacks continue.

To urge a single standard of adherence to international law, please sign this petition:

President Obama, your condemnation of Russia for a “breach of international law” rings hollow while your administration continues to violate international law with drone strikes and other missile attacks across borders. I urge you to end those U.S. violations of international law and move toward a new era of genuine adherence to international law.
