Cynthia McKinney, former US congresswoman sent to Africa in 1996 to carry out Clinton’s policy in the Great Lakes region, testified on Tuesday at the Audiencia Nacional [National Court of Spain] in the lawsuit initiated by the International Forum for Truth and Justice in Africa of the Great Lakes Region. “I accused his Administration of having acted as accomplices in the war crimes in Congo and instigating a genocide.”
“What my government wanted,” McKinney explained to La Vanguardia “wasn’t in the best interest of the Congolese people: Clinton kept me there because he wanted an African-American whom Kabila trusted. Even though Mobutu was, technically, the President of Congo, it was Kabila who was in charge of granting the mining concessions.”

On May 25th, 2007, Cynthia McKinney was interviewed by phone on the air by New York City's WBAI. The interview included her thoughts on the complicity on the current Democrat majority, the Bush mobilization against Iran, the ongoing military interventions across the African Continent, speculation on the possibility of a Green Party presidential bid in 2008 and plans for the June 9th Revolutionary Love event scheduled for NYC as a fund raiser to retire the debt from her 2006 Congressional campaign.
In a 24 minute interview, she described the Democrat Party as "parting the waters for the Bush Administration" in his prosecution of his war on the people of Iraq.
Speaking of the current contenders for the Democratic nomination, Ms. McKinney told her radio audience, " . . . with the current crop of candidates, who are all supporting a military action against Iran, and who none of them support impeachment; they can not speak for me any longer."

Two centuries ago, the United States, Latin America, and Haiti were joined in the struggle for dignity and freedom. In 1779, when a fledgling United States was fighting for its independence, a unit of Haitian volunteers answered the call and fought alongside George Washington in the Battle of Savannah.
When Haiti threw off imperial domination, it helped Latin America to become free. In fact, Simon Bolivar received supplies from Haiti for his victorious war over Spanish imperialism while Venezuela's first tri-color flag was
Good morning friends, families, parents, administration, faculty, and graduates in the Class of 2007, Antioch College!
As a proud citizen of the United States of America, and one who has had the good fortune to travel the length and breadth of this great land, I can say to you that the most fundamental set of questions today that we must ponder includes "Who are we as Americans?"

As a mother of a son who will soon be graduating, and as your self-appointed political mother, I say to you that I wish I could send you into a better America and into a better world.
But something strange has happened to our Dream. The American Dream. Coretta and Martin's Dream for our beloved country is now contorted. Distorted. Twisted. Disfigured. And what are you prepared to do about it?
