As Memorial Day approaches, please contact your Senators and Representatives this week and urge them to free drone whistleblower Daniel Hale.
Daniel Hale acted courageously and out of conscience. He feels deep remorse for the role he played while serving as an intelligence analyst in Afghanistan. A U.S. Air Force veteran, Daniel has recently completed the first year of a 45-month prison sentence for exposing the realities of U.S drone warfare. He should never have been prosecuted.
Daniel Hale revealed military documents that demonstrated the high rate of civilian casualties inflicted by the US drone program. At times, 90% of drone strikes hit unintended targets or innocent bystanders. His truth-telling also exposed the guidelines for the US terror watch list. Although this information was unclassified, it was kept from the public. This disclosure enabled individuals to successfully challenge their placement on the notorious No Fly List.
Not a single day in prison would be just, but Daniel’s incarceration is a particularly pointed move by the federal government to silence him even further; he was placed in a “CMU” or communications management unit at USP Marion, where his communications with friends and family are monitored, surveilled and severely restricted.
Please Stand With Daniel Hale by asking your members of Congress to support efforts to pardon him and to call for his immediate release!
