Forum - Obama and the War on Terror (Paul George)

President Barack Obama’s May 23 policy speech on the so-called war on terror was a call for change. It was clear that Obama was responding to tremendous public pressure to end the policies of his predecessor. How far does his new policy go toward ending the perpetual war, and what might the new national security program look like? Pau George will dig into the President’s address to find out whether our endless war might actually be ending.

Paul George has been a grassroots human rights activist and organizer for over 40 years. He is the director of Peninsula Peace and Justice Center and a frequent public speaker on a range of topics. He is renowned for his sharp analyses and clear explanations of complex national policies.

After the Forum, please join us for a buffet lunch at 12:15pm.  The lunch is complimentary for first-time visitors and students.

    Paul George is an excellent speaker on this topic. I cringed at learning about signature strikes and the magnitude of damage per drone.

    I was paying attention in general, but one point got my attention: the distinction drawn between civilians and militants: Males over the age of 14 were considered militants, so if a 17-year-old boy was killed in Pakistan, his blood was NOT on the hands of US drone operators. The US was not admitting, until recently, that some civilians had been killed in Iraq, Pakistan, or Afghanistan
