Three days after his inauguration, on January 23, 2009, President Barack Obama ordered U.S. predator drones to attack sites inside of Pakistan. It was the first documented attack ordered by the new U.S. commander-in-chief inside of Pakistan. Since that first attack, the U.S. has regularly bombed Pakistan, killing scores of civilians. Pakistan is now one of the biggest recipients of U.S. aid, with the House of Representatives recently approving a tripling of money to Pakistan to about $1.5 billion a year for five years. Join us for a discussion about the war on Pakistan and the antiwar resistance movement.
