Abstract:

Where are the W.M.D.? It doesn't take a team of international inspectors to find the truth. Three nuns performed this service for free. Even as America sent its military forces into Iraq on the grounds that Saddam might have had Weapons of Mass Destruction, three nuns set out to open America's eyes to the W.M.D.s we cherish here at home. Armed with nothing but a rosary, a call for moral courage and a pair of fence-cutting pliers, three nuns spilled their own blood from baby bottles on the concrete dome of a missile silo in the midst of the sagebrush prairie. The stage was set for this peaceful protest by a sequence of events rooted in diplomatic and economic machinations going back to 1991 and before. No sign of W.M.D. was found in Iraq, though no stone was left unturned and no office left unburned. Here in the U.S., three nuns were sent to jail for undermining national security. Apparently, no one appreciates an unexpected wake-up call. Three nuns went to jail -- and the whole world went to hell in a handbasket. This book is about the injustice of the U.S. federal courts that sent the nuns to jail for virtuous conduct, and the public that preferred not to hear about it. It's about political immorality and the meaning of justice in a nation where it seems to be illegal to carry out non-violent protests against mass killing. The book also reveals the corporate sources of the weapons of mass destruction (W.M.D.) that were delivered to Saddam Hussein in the 1980s and raises troubling questions about responsibility.
