WASHINGTON – U.S. Congressman Dennis J. Kucinich (D-OH) issued the following statement after learning of the death of former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto. Bhutto was killed in Rawalpindi, Pakistan in a suicide attack following a campaign rally.

“This is a very dangerous moment for the world,” Kucinich said. “Benazir Bhutto represented a courageous effort to bring principles of liberty to Pakistan. She was truly dedicated to the people of Pakistan. “The United States must change its policy direction in the region. It must stop adding fuel to the fire.” Kucinich met with Bhutto several times over the years in both Washington, D.C. and New York City.

  • Dennis Kucinich is the only politician in Washington D.C. who tells the truth. The complete and simple truth. Always. He is articulate, convincing and friendly. Yet he speaks truth to power. Always. Therefore he is hated in that city.

    There’s a good chance you’ve never heard of him because most Americans don’t know him. He is shutout of the U.S. press unless he is being ridiculed there.

    And guess what? He is actually running for president of the united states.

    And on Thursday, I will caucus for him in my neighborhood in Des Moines Iowa. This caucus is an open ballot. Free discussion among people. The people gather together for their respective candidates.

    I may be the only person standing for Dennis Kucinich. But I will stand up for this man. He has a deep understanding and empathy for the people of Pakistan.

    btw, Dennis Kucinich is a follower of Mayor Tom Johnson who was mayor of Cleveland around 1900. Mayor Tom Johnson was a follower of Henry George. What’s even more interesting is that Mayor Tom Johnson was a successful industrial monopolist, very powerful and very wealthy.

    After Tom Johnson read Henry George’s “Progress and Poverty” he dispersed his wealth and became one with the people of Cleveland.

    Tom Johnson and Benazir Bhutto would have been great friends. Thank you, Dennis.
