Former US House Member Ashamed of US Policies

Former Rep. Cynthia McKinney Visits Iran and Trashes America

Former member of the US House of Representatives Cynthia Anne McKinney said she is truly ashamed of her country's policies.

Addressing an international conference dubbed 'International Coalition against Terrorism for Fair Peace' here in Tehran on Saturday, the former US House member urged Washington to avoid imposing its will on the world nations through the use of force, violence and weapons.

"As an American, I am upset with the policies of my country, but the measures adopted by the first Afro-American president of the United States has ashamed us all," she said.
