Presidential candidate Buttigieg and the Iraq war

This 5 December 2019 video from the USA says about itself:

What was Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg doing in his safe house in Iraq — and why is he hiding it? Max Blumenthal and Ben Norton speak with Peter Van Buren, a longtime US State Department employee turned whistleblower.

Van Buren explains how corporate contractors profited from the war and built a shielded bubble of corruption in Baghdad’s Green Zone. We also address McKinsey & Company’s work with the CIA and Mayor Pete’s links to American intelligence agencies.

  1. My name is Jorden Giger and I’m a Lead Organizer with Our Revolution in South Bend, Indiana: Pete Buttigieg’s hometown.

    I’m writing to let you know that our group hosted an ORGANIZE TO WIN 2020 kickoff right here in South Bend to put Mayor Pete and the entire political establishment on notice.

    Rush a donation now to make sure we have the resources to cut through the corporate media noise and expose how Mayor Pete is failing to meet the needs of working people and minorities:

    Political Revolution

    The rest of America deserves to know what we have learned first-hand through Pete Buttigieg’s failed leadership.

    After Eric Logan was murdered by South Bend police, we asked for concrete action — a citizens review board, more implicit bias testing and training for officers, disciplinary action for officers who don’t turn on their body cameras — and we’re still waiting.

    Instead of helping low-income residents fix up their decaying homes and employing minority contractors to do the work, he created a lucrative revenue stream on the backs of those same communities with fines, late fees, and taxes.

    That’s why it’s so important that we get the truth out about how Mayor Pete has failed to support working people and minorities in South Bend. Donate here so we can continue organizing to hold Mayor Pete and the political establishment accountable to the people!

    Our Revolution is building a powerful movement so we can organize to win on the issues that matter — like affordable housing and police accountability — both locally and nationally.

    Thank you for being a part of exposing the establishment and winning the political revolution.

    Together, we are part of something truly special.
