Bearing witness against remote control of reaper drones from U.S.
military bases, about 20 protesters rallied Sunday, April 6, at the
Spirit Gate entry to Whiteman Air Force Base near Knob Noster, Mo.
Noting the name Whiteman Air Force Base, former CIA intelligence
analyst Ray McGovern in his talk said, “When B2 bombers flew out of
here to Afghanistan and Iraq, they weren’t killing people who looked
like us (white), but who were what the airmen were taught to call
‘sand niggers’ or ‘towel-heads.’ White-man is killing brown, black,
and other men, women, and children who don’t look like us. White-man
Air Force Base is a reflection of the American original sin, racism.”
