Image Quotes about The Pentagon




Howard Simon - President Bush claims expanded intelligence powers are necessary to combat terrorism, yet we have evidence the Pentagon is using counterterrorism tools to spy on peaceful groups like the Quakers in Ft. Lauderdale. Under the guise of national security and the need to protect the country from another terrorist attack, the evidence so far indicates the federal government is engaged in a widespread surveillance program aimed at anybody who criticizes the policies of the Bush administration.

Ibrahim Hooper - [The Pentagon] decided to end whatever efforts they had because they said they hadn't found any evidence that military personnel were involved -- even though if you went to the site, somebody sent me one of the images where the person's name and unit were clearly indicated in the photograph, ... All we can do is bring these things to the attention of the Pentagon; we can't force them to do it. If they want to drop it at that point without having really gone into it, then that's their choice. We stated at the time that we thought it was premature. There couldn't possibly have been a full investigation in the time that was allotted and it was sending a negative message.
