We oppose the war-mongering views of James Clapper

This petition had 68 supporters

James Clapper is the former Director of National Intelligence for the United States Government, and has held several other high posts within United States Intelligence agencies.

In 2003 he was one of the figures who justified the invasion of Iraq on the false claim that the country possessed weapons of mass destruction. In 2013 Clapper denied that the National Security Agency had collected data on American citizens. This led directly to Edward Snowden leaking files that demonstrated that the NSA had collected data on over 100 million civilians. In Snowden’s words: ‘[T]he breaking point was seeing the director of national intelligence, James Clapper, directly lie under oath to Congress. ... Seeing that really meant for me there was no going back.’ There have since been calls internationally, including from US representatives, to have Clapper tried for perjury.

Added to this, Clapper’s invitation is to speak in support of the Australian-US Alliance, an imperial partnership responsible for millions of deaths.

We the undersigned condemn the war-mongering views of James Clapper
