Faith Fippinger, Humanitarian, 62
not a criminal as US Treasury says

Retired Florida school teacher, Faith Fippinger, 62, went to Iraq to help out. After three months, she returned to a letter from the Treasury Department that indicated that she could be fined up to $1 million, loose her pension, and go to prison all because she served as a human shield in Iraq, taught in schools, did hospital work, and actively guarded oil refineries. She apparently is suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) because of the horrors that she witnessed in Iraq, so she needs the same program to overcome that syndrome as we have demanded for the veterans.

If you're reading this information, then you know that the US Treasury Department ignored my message that I sent on November 7, 2003. Therefore, please contact the US Treasury Department, attention: John Snow, Secretary of the Treasury at:
The Department of the Treasury
Office of the Treasurer
1500 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Room 2134
Washington DC 20220
(202) 622-2000
Fax: (202) 622-6415
or send Email at the following Web site:

Here is what I said when I sent feedback:

"The U.S. Treasury Department has elected to prosecute Faith Fippinger because it considers her a criminal. She is a humanitarian; the whole world knows that it is the US government that is the criminal, terrorist, and that it is George W. Bush who has no conscience whatsoever.

You had better drop any actions on Ms. Fippinger, as I will make the whole world aware of your action if you don't, and the world will boycott the United States for tourism and as many products as it possibly can until you learn that you can not call people, who are trying to do good, criminals.
I'm an American who has exposed four centuries worth of the lies that you there in Washington D.C. have disseminated, so know whereof I speak. I reach more and more people everyday who listen to me because they know that the US government is the terrorist.

The response from the recipient at that Web site advised to contact my senators; I did. You can do that too. Demand that your senators co-sponsor and pass legislation that would stop Faith Fippinger and people like her from being prosecuted or you will not vote for them the next time they run for re-election. If you are outside of the United States, simply send the Demand page on which a demand will be provided to help Ms. Fippinger.
