I thought I’d write a quick thread to explain why I wrote this article on moral injury.

In the fall of last year, I worked alongside a group of veterans as part of the #afghanevac efforts and saw them experience the raw pain of moral injury first hand.

This was in stark contrast to what was playing out on televised press conferences from the #Pentagon and #WhiteHouse at the time.

The disconnect between the optimistic picture #military leaders were painting and the devastation these veterans were experiencing was shocking.

2/
Take, for example, Pentagon spokesman John Kirby, reassuring the American public that the US military was indeed evacuating our allies.

All while veterans were receiving desperate texts from vulnerable allies saying they were being turned away at the Kabul airport.

Odotan jo nyt millainen farssi syntyy kun @vapaavuori@helsinki⁩ & valitut #Covid19🦠-taktiikat tulevat selvittelyyn : 🍿

”Jan Vapaavuori pakoili tökerösti vastuuta – yksi ristiriita meriselityksessä paljastaa totuuden armottomasta kulissipelistä” is.fi/urheilu/art-20…
Aikooko @kokoomus yhä ajatella #Vapaavuori nostoa presidenttikisaan, kun maine on kahden valtavan virheen pilaama:
1. #Olympiakomitea ja lähentelyjen salliminen osaksi sen toimintaa

1. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine violates laws and norms that the international community built & reinforced over decades.

A 🧵 on evidence of Russian possible violations of int'l laws & norms and implications for the new global order that will emerge from the #Ukraine conflict:
2. On Wednesday @columlynch of @ForeignPolicy noted that @POTUS is reviewing #USA policy on the International Criminal Court investigation into war crimes and atrocities stemming from the #RussiaUkraineWar. It’s tricky for the #WhiteHouse on many fronts.
3. #Biden also stated yesterday that Putin is a war criminal.

If you followed #FreedomConvoy, even supported it, did you really understand danger it poses to Canada? Maybe you waved away extremist elements, saying just a few "bad apples". You'd be deluding yourself. It's time to scratch below the surface, start here:
thewalrus.ca/ottawa-convoy/
Those various flags seen throughout the protest. They weren't one-offs or bad apples, they were embedded in the protest from the start. You saw them:
#Trump flags, Confederate flags, 3% flags, &, yes, Swastika flags (if you have one Nazi in a crowd, you've got a crowd of Nazis).
Think this is an exaggeration? Maybe start to examine what's actually driving these groups. Organizers of #TruckConvoy have a history of extremist views, from #Wexit to disgusting racist bigotry and hatred. It wasn't hidden, you just ignored it.

Today is the 5th anniversary of the passing of the #MuslimBan. The hateful act has left families separated and thousands of people still unable to enter our nation. It's not enough to end the ban. @POTUS must address its ongoing harmful effects.
Last Friday, we joined @NoMuslimBanEver, @NIACouncil and over 100 other organizations in a letter urging @POTUS to provide relief to those still impacted by Trump’s Muslim and African Bans.
Over 41,000 visa applicants from the banned countries were denied as a result of Trump's travel bans. People who won their diversity visas were denied this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for themselves & their families. They need a new chance to claim their lost diversity visas.

.@TheIndPanel Co-Chair @MaEllenSirleaf just addressed the #WhiteHouse #UNGA #COVID19Summit & called on leaders to urgently implement the Panel’s package of recommendations.

Read her statement:

theindependentpanel.org/remarks-delive…
"Coordinated, global leadership was woefully absent. And global tensions undermined multilateral institutions and cooperative action.

It is clear that the current international system failed to protect us all from this catastrophic pandemic—and it is not fit to prevent another."
"The world cannot wait longer to make the changes we need to curb this crisis and avert the next.

To deal decisively with #Covid19 & prepare for future threats requires comprehensive & sustained political commitment commensurate with the existential threat posed by pandemics."

Twitter पर Unfollow किए जाने के बाद अमेरिका की पहली यात्रा

पिछले ही साल #Hydroxychloroquine देने पर हमारे वास्कोडिगामा (@narendramodi) और मूक मानुष(@rashtrapatibhvn) को #WhiteHouse द्वारा Follow किया गया था

मोदीजी को एशिया का पहला आदि-मानव बताए जाने की होड़ लग गई थी #GodiMedia
के द्वारा;
फिर अचानक आसमान से मुसीबत का पहाड़ टूटा या फिर न जाने क्या हुआ;
White house ने भारत के प्रधानमंत्री; राष्ट्रपति और जिसको भी follow किया था एक ही हफ्ते बाद सबको unfollow कर दिया।

मैं आज तक अपमानित महसूस कर रहा हूँ कि हमारे देश के राष्ट्रपति और प्रधानमंत्री के साथ
कोई भी ऐसा व्यवहार कैसे कर सकता है!?

Die Widerstandsbewegung in #Afghanistan meldet weitere Erfolge.
Die #Taliban sollen weitere Ortschaften in der Provinz #Baghlan an sie verloren haben.
Zum Teil sollen in einigen Dörfern die Bewohner selbst zu Waffen gegriffen und die Taliban verjagt haben.
(2/10)
Die #Taliban scheinen die Berichte ernst zu nehmen und sollen mittlerweile Verstärkungstruppen in die Provinz geschickt haben, um die neue Widerstandsbewegung dort zu zerschlagen.
Der eigentliche langfristige Herd des Widerstandes bleibt aber eh in der Provinz #Panjshir .

A Brief History of Buddhism in the White House

It’s been reported that history was made yesterday with a White House ceremony for Vesak, a holiday for the birth, awakening and death of the Buddha. That's not quite true. #vesak #WhiteHouse @LionsRoar @Buddhistdoor @BuddhistEthics
The ceremony is indeed important, but the history of Vesak at the White House is longer. Buddhists first gathered for Vesak at the White House in 2015. The event was the "First White House—US Buddhist Leaders Conference," held May 14, 2015.
Organized by Bill Aiken (Soka Gakkai), T.Kenjitsu Nakagaki (Jodo Shinshu), Bhikkhu Bodhi (Theravada), Sallie King (Zen), Matthew Regan (Son), and Duncan Ryuken Williams (Soto Zen), the event was spurred by concerns about climate change and the need for engaged Buddhism.

Vice-president under Barack #Obama and a senator for 36 years, #JoeBiden is a political figure familiar to most Americans🇺🇸

To many, he lacks the aura of the last Democratic president, but after a period of turmoil in US politics, is he the steady pair of hands the nation needs?
#US 🇺🇸 President Joe #Biden moved swiftly to dismantle Donald #Trump’s legacy on his first day in office.

The president signed a series of executive actions to reverse course on immigration, climate change, racial equity and handling of the pandemic ✍️

@WassimCornet reports ⤵️
@WassimCornet 🇺🇸 Meanwhile, Donald #Trump has a long way to go to rebuild an image left in tatters by his presidency, particularly the final months.

France 24's @ketgorjestani said that the Republican left the White House "with the lowest rating of his presidency" ⤵️
