Letter to Administration Offers Alternatives to Military Action in Iraq

Over 50 organizations including FAN, signed a recent letter to president Obama offering lists of alternatives to deal with the situation in Iraq.

"While the dire plight of Iraqi civilians should compel the international community to respond in some way, U.S. military action is not the answer," the 53 clergy, theologians and religious sisters and brothers write in the Aug. 27th open letter.
