Dear President Obama, never mind your not going to do anything but keep the murderers and assassins in power anyway…

Letter to President Obama regarding the June 22 attack on protesters in Bahrain
25 June, 2012 – Mary Fletcher Jones

Dear President Obama,

Thank you for your previous comments on human rights and your support for the people of Bahrain.

I am writing to you to respectfully request that you or one of your staff issue a White House statement condemning the unprovoked June 22, 2012 attack on protesters by Bahrain riot police, which was widely reported by the news media, including The Washington Post.

On this day, a small group of men faced riot police, stating that they came in peace and bearing roses. They were fired on with deadly force, even as they fled. They were shot in the back. Several members of Al Wefaq were injured, and one man has sustained serious brain injury and is in critical condition.

They committed no crime; the police say they were trying to “prevent traffic congestion.”

I understand the strategic alliance between the U.S. and Bahrain, and the challenges that presents, but as the leader of a country that respects human rights, I know you will not let this event pass without comment.

President Obama, you can see the video that portrays the attack on YouTube ” target=”_blank”>HERE

I know our State Dept. is trying to improve the situation in Bahrain — but this is beyond the pale, even given past events in that country.

I know what you say holds great weight with the Kingdom — please do what you can to help.
