"If a U.S. military engagement had been designed as a limited strategy to rescue Yazidis and to evacuate U.S. personnel, we would have reacted differently," writes Angela Canterbury, Executive Director of Council for a Livable World. "But the open-ended nature of the stated mission was and continues to be alarming."
We are pleased to welcome Angela Canterbury as the next Executive Director of Council for a Livable World, PeacePAC, and the Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation.
“We are proud to have raised more than a million dollars in support of current and future members of the House and Senate who believe in a common sense national security strategy that will make America and the world safer,” said Executive Director John Isaacs. “Together, these Senators and Representatives will be able to advance sensible policies to encourage diplomacy, prevent nuclear terrorism, reduce spending on Cold War relics and invest in a stronger and more strategic Pentagon.”
