I will only add that Cynthia McKinney was my choice and my vote for POTUSA this past November. She was arrested by Israeli forces along with 20 other activists while trying to deliver humanitarian aid to Gaza. She is back in the states as of Tuesday, July 7.--Pete

John Judge - I got a call confirming that former Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney and three other U.S. citizens were transferred from the Israeli prison at Ramale to Ben Gurion airport in Israel, the standard site for deportations. This information came originally from Mairead Maguire, the Irish Nobel laureate and was confirmed by the US Embassy in Tel Aviv, which is sending representatives to the airport.

Meanwhile nothing from the White House or the Black Caucus on the arrest of McKinney. Pretty selective outrage.
