Sam, it's so very appropriate that Mokhiber recognized your efforts to get to the truth despite the State Department's efforts to stonewall. I just saw the following printed in a ZeroHedge article which shows there are many staffers in the White House who share similar concerns.

"Yet another, bigger State Department dissent memo has emerged which slams President Biden's handling of the Israel-Gaza crisis. The memo obtained by Axios is signed by 100 State Department and USAID employees and bluntly asserts that the United States is supporting Israeli "war crimes".

Axios notes that the memo was organized by a foreign affairs officer who has in the recent past made public statements saying Biden is "complicit in genocide" - given the soaring Palestinian death toll, now at over 11,200 Gazans killed since Oct.7.

The memo characterizes the Israeli aerial and ground assault as follows: "all constitute war crimes and/or crimes against humanity under international law"--but says it's made worse by the US doubling "down on our unwavering military assistance to the (Israeli government) without clear or actionable redlines."

We should remember that the World Court in the 1980s ruled that the U.S. mining of Nicaraguan harbors was an illegal war crime. Nothing came out of it, except perhaps some broader recognition of the heinous actions of the U.S. This is not nothing, but it will not stop the genocide.

I just gave my senators and representative due notice about the details of the Genocide Convention, for what it's worth. Just a little more opprobrium, hopefully.
