As the Obama government attempts to justify its drone program, Staff Sergeant Shane R. Owens, a drone sensor operator suffering from PTSD from having been involved with drone killing, assigned to the 11th Reconnaissance Squadron at Creech AFB, has been confined by the Air Force without charges since March 5 at nearby Nellis AFB in Nevada.
Please contact the following Air Force officials and demand that Owens be released and that the Air Force disclose all details of his case, including whether Owens was functioning as a drone sensor operator at the same time he was being treated for PTSD.
1. Secretary of the Air Force Deborah Lee James – Email http://www.af.mil/
2. Nellis AFB Commanding Officer Colonel Richard Boutwell – Call Nellis Public Affairs (702) 652-2750
I support allowing public communication with Shane Owens and respecting unwillingness to kill unknowns in neighborhoods. Let us set an example of not killing civilians.
Before you pull the splinter out of your brother’s, pull the plank out of your own! We should be thanking him for keeping our Country safe and free! Semper Fidelis!
