GREEN PARTY OF THE UNITED STATES

Greens: After the death of Osama bin Laden, the next step must be
peace, including rapid withdrawal from Afghanistan

• GreenStream Wednesday online call-in show, May 4, 6pm PT, 9pm ET:
Greens will discuss Osama bin Laden and related topics.
• Green Party Speakers Bureau: Greens available to speak on foreign
policy and peace

WASHINGTON, DC -- Green Party leaders on Monday expressed hope that
news of the killing of Osama bin Laden marks a new stage, in which US
troops are withdrawn from Iraq and Afghanistan; air assaults on
Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Libya are halted; the US presses Israel to
observe full human rights and justice for the Palestinian people; and
violations of domestic civil liberties are overturned..

On September 11, 2001, the Green Party strongly condemned the attacks
on the World Trade Center and Pentagon as an international crime and
called for capture and prosecution of the perpetrators
.Greens argued that
concerted police action, with international cooperation, was the way
to bring the 9/11 criminals to justice, and that war would only lead
to mass death and destruction, deeper international conflict, and
erosion of civil liberties and the rule of law in the US.

But Greens expressed alarm at the changing story of the May 1 raid,
which, according to changing news reports (complicated by the apparent
destruction of on-the-scene evidence), has begun to look more like a
targeted assassination or summary execution than an attempt to arrest
Osama bin Laden and bring him to justice.

"The American public has responded to this news with various reactions
ranging from celebration to anxiety about the future of global
security.  Green Party members also lost friends, neighbors, and
co-workers in the 9/11 attacks. We understand these reactions and are
focused on the next steps ahead. The Green Party of the United States
supported action in which bin Laden would be arrested as a suspect,
tried on the evidence, and if found guilty punished for his actions to
the fullest extent of the law short of execution -- the Green Party
strongly opposes any use of the death penalty.  In custody, bin Laden
might have provided vital intelligence," said Justine McCabe, co-chair
of the International Committee.

"Nonviolence is a key principle of the Green Party, and Greens condemn
any and all killing of unarmed civilians, in any country and on any
side of a conflict.  Greens understand the connection between global
security and protection of human rights.  Every US bomb dropped on a
village, every case of torture motivates someone to take Osama bin
Laden's place," said Sanda Everette, former co-chair of the Green
Party of the United States and a longtime peace activist.

Greens noted that decades of US support for dictators, plundering of
resources, maintenance of military bases in the Gulf region, and
manipulative policies (e.g., arming of the Mujahedeen) have led to
hostility against the US, which was aggravated by the wars on Iraq and
Afghanistan in the wake of 9/11.  Green Party leaders called on the
Obama Administration to reverse direction and adopt a peaceful, fair,
and non-imperial foreign policy, to minimize the number of new enemies
we create and bring peace to the region.

"As Greens anticipated in 2001, the Bush Administration's wars on Iraq
and Afghanistan resulted in hundreds of thousands of civilians dead,
many more wounded, while leaving the environment and infrastructure of
both countries in ruins. In the case of Iraq, the US invasion was
justified by false claims that Saddam Hussein had participated or
cooperated with al-Qaeda in the 9/11 attacks. The severity of the
attacks have also been used to justify torture in the US, denial of
habeas corpus, and other abuses of power and violations of
constitutional and international law, as well as pointless 'homeland
security' policies and the USA Patriot Act," said Farheen Hakeem,
co-chair of the Green Party of the United States.

Greens said that many unanswered questions remain about the 9/11
attacks, such as the sources of funding for the terrorists (including
connections with Pakistan and Saudia Arabia), CIA and FBI intelligence
on the hijackers, and ignored evidence of the impending attack, all of
which deserve extensive independent investigation
. The two co-chairs of the
9/11 Commission, Thomas Kean and Lee Hamilton, have stated their
belief that the Bush Administration established the Commission in a
way that ensured that it would fail.  One lingering mystery is the
President Bush's refusal of the Taliban's offer to turn Osama bin
Laden over for trial before and after the 9/11 attacks
