Faulty NSA Intel May be to Blame for Killing of Dozens of Peaceful Civilians in Maryland by drone strike.

In an action covered by HispanTv,  DC Media Group, and No Drones Maryland, dozens of demonstrators came out to the NSA headquarters in Fort Meade on May 3rd to denounce the NSA for its collaboration in extrajudicial drone killing. The day took a fatal turn, though, when hellfire missiles suddenly rained down upon the peaceful protestors.
Chaos and terror quickly overtook those
 gathered outside the NSA headquarters.
Many tried to stand firm and deliver their message
 against drone terror, but were quickly obliterated.

As Alfredo Miranda of HispanTV reported "The NSA plays an important role in the drone program, providing intelligence to the agencies in charge of executing the attacks; information that is not necessarily correct." The coordinates provided by the NSA for a May 3rd drone attack must have been particularly inaccurate, unless the agency intended for the fatal drone strike to target the civilians gathered just outside its doorstep.
Faced with a new sense of the urgency of their mission, the
 survivors arose to stand in solidarity with those threatened by
 drone terror in Pakistan and Yemen. David Barrow holds up

Max Obuszewski stated the simple mission of the demonstrators:
 to gain a hearing with a member of the agency in order
 to discuss bringing an end to its involvement in criminal,
 indiscriminate drone killing.
Protestors remained strong and united as they marched onto the
They soon engaged in nonviolent civil disobedience.

NSA police came out in force to arrest three citizen activists,
 seemingly feeling quite threatened by them.

A glimmer of doubt?

Three Citizen Activists Arrested at NSA In Killer Drone Protest

One of three arrests that took place at
 NSA headquarters on Saturday, 5/3.
WHO:  Members of the National Campaign for Nonviolent Resistance (NCNR) have been speaking out against the illegal actions of the United States government since 2003.  They have organized numerous actions across the country involving nonviolent civil resistance as they call attention to the violent crimes of our government.

WHAT:  Members of NCNR sent a letter to Vice Admiral Michael Rogers, the director of the National Security Agency, calling for an end to the NSA’s involvement in the illegal drone assassination program.   The NSA plays a significant role in targeting victims of U.S. killer drone strikes, and must be held responsible for being involved in an illegal and unconstitutional strategy which has killed, it is believed, six U.S. citizens and thousands of non-combatants. There was no response to the letter. 

So, as profiled on Popular, twenty citizen activists went to Fort Meade to seek a meeting.

 First, they gathered along side Route 32
 to protest killer drone strikes.
Then each person read five names
 of children killed by U.S. drone strikes. 
Next they simulated a drone strike,
 and most of the protesters then died-in
 and became victims of a drone attack.

 The die-in continued for about 20 minutes,
 and Janice Sevre-Duszynska, a Roman
 Catholic woman priest, wailed and
 ministered to the victims.

    Dick Ochs performed his own drone song and played the guitar.  Then the victims arose as there was work to be done. The citizen activists were headed to the guard station to seek a meeting with someone in a policy-making role. 
Stop the war machine! Export peace!

As they marched, they sang Peace, Shalom.

  However, NSA police blocked the public road and arrested Baltimore residents Ellen Barfield and Marilyn Carlisle and Manijeh Saba from Somerset, New Jersey.

WHEN AND WHERE:  Saturday, May 3, 2014 at 2:30 PM at the NSA at Fort Meade, Maryland

WHY:  Within the last month yet another US drone strike took place in Yemen killing dozens of "suspected terrorists". Sadly, the Obama administration is following in the footsteps of the Bush Administration,  keeping this country in a state of perpetual war. NCNR members must resist such an offensive foreign policy. Congress has never declared war against Pakistan or Yemen, yet drones have attacked citizens of both counties despite a lack of due process.
Drones are Cowardly
The National Campaign for Nonviolent Resistance believes that this assassination program violates international law, and will continue to join with other organizations across the country in resisting this abomination. The three citizen activists arrested at the National Security Agency were abiding by their Nuremberg Obligation.  The Nuremberg Principles make it clear that when a government is engaged in illegal activities, citizens must take action.  Barfield, Carlisle and Saba are facing three federal charges—failure to comply with a lawful order, entering protected property and disorderly conduct.  They will eventually be arraigned in federal court in Baltimore, but a date is yet to be determined. The three citizen activists look forward to appearing in court, as they hope to put the drone assassination program on trial.
"I believe in the principle declared at Nuremberg
 in 1945: 'Individuals have international duties which
 transcend the national obligations of obedience.
 Therefore individual citizens have the duty to violate
 domestic laws to prevent crimes against peace
 and humanity from occurring.'"
