‘The Moral High Ground’: In Full-Page Washington Post Ad, Retired U.S. Generals Urge Obama to “Say No to War of Choice with Iran”
A group of retired high-level U.S. military and intelligence officials have bought a full-page ad in the Washington Post urging President Obama not to start a war with Iran.
“Mr. President: Say No to War of Choice with Iran,” the ad begins, followed by a series of quotes from former and current Pentagon and intelligence brass, including Defense Secretary Leon Panetta (who has publicly stated that Iran is not trying to develop nuclear weapons), highlighting the dangers of attacking Iran.
Beneath those quotes is an open letter to President Obama. Here’s the full-page ad as it appeared in the Post:
