Responses to S. Douglas Saunders 12/11/12 letter to the Post-Standard about John Pilger’s article on Dr. Dhafir’s case:

John Pilger is a veteran investigative journalist and documentary filmmaker of some 40 years.  He has twice won Britain’s Journalist of the Year Award, and his documentaries have gained awards in Britain and worldwide. (more…)

Please write to the Post-Standard and ask that, in the interest of fairness and justice, it publish veteran journalist, and documentary film maker, John Pilger’s recent article on Dr. Rafil Dhafir’s case, The end of justice in America: John Pilger has waived his fee and so no syndication payment is required.

A recent email on behalf of the Dr. Dhafir Support Committee has gone unanswered; with your help we hope the Post-Standard will publish the article.  Write to: Stan Linhorst, Senior Managing Editor: slinhorst@syracuse.com with copies to: Mike Connor, Executive Editor: mconnor@syracuse.com, Janis Barth: Managing, Editor: jbarth@syracuse.com, Rich Sullivan, Managing Editor: rsullivan@syracuse.com

Please be courteous in your correspondence; thank you on behalf of the Dr. Dhafir Support Committee.

Subject: The End of Justice in America

I’m writing to ask you to republish an article about the case of Dr. Rafil Dhafir in the Syracuse Post Standard.  The article, “The End of Justice in America” is by veteran journalist and documentary filmmaker John Pilger and was published in today’s New Statesman. John Pilger has very kindly offered to waive any fee for republishing the article, provided you print it exactly as it’s printed in the New Statesman.  The Post Standard’s coverage of this case has never given the Syracuse public an opportunity to view the case from any other point of view than the government’s and publishing this article would be a perfect opportunity to redress some of the balance.

Thank you to the Syracuse Post Standard for publishing my letter today.

To the Editor:

On Friday, February 3rd, Judge Mordue resentenced Dr. Rafil Dhafir to 22 years in prison, in large part because he is unrepentant about sending food and medicine to starving Iraqi civilians in violation of International Economic Emergency Powers Act (IEEPA). (more…)
