Rep. Tulsi Gabbard’s “Stop Arming Terrorists Act”

By Stephen Lendman, December 11 2016

Gabbard’s legislation requires the Director of National Intelligence to identify nations, groups and individuals involved in terrorist activities or supporting them. She endorses ending US interventionist practices against nations like Syria threatening no one. Her measure is a courageous act going nowhere in neocon infested Congress.

By Sridhar Chakravarthi Raman, December 11 2016
