FACT CHECK: U.S. Airman Aaron Bushnell killed himself with FIRE to avoid having to participate in Israel’s genocide in Gaza
By Ethan Huff // Mar 06, 2024

Contrary to what you may have heard, U.S. Airman Aaron Bushnell did not light himself on fire to end his life in protest of some other country's war. Bushnell committed suicide to avoid having to comply with a mandatory order from the United States Department of Defense (DoD) to fight alongside Israel in its genocide on Gaza.

The Grayzone News editor Max Blumenthal tweeted a fact check about Bushnell's death that sets the record straight about why the airman decided to make this kind of statement with his own life.

"The U.S. Department of Defense has compelled the participation of Air Force members like Bushnell in Israel's Gaza genocide," Blumenthal explains. "Their orders to deploy to Israel read 'mandatory.'"

U.S. military directly killing Palestinians alongside Israel

It turns out that the United States military has been providing intelligence for airstrikes in Gaza, meaning Israel's successes thus far in ethnically cleansing the Palestinian territory would not have been possible without help from the military-industrial complex.

A document obtained via a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request reveals how the U.S. Air Force sent officers specializing in this particular form of intelligence to Israel back in late November, not long after the October 7 false flag attack by Hamas.

"Since the start of Israel's bombardment in retaliation for Hamas’s strike on October 7, Israel has dropped more than 29,000 bombs on the tiny Gaza Strip, according to a U.S. intelligence report last month," write Ken Klippenstein and Matthew Petti for The Intercept.

"And for the first time in U.S. history, the Biden administration has been flying surveillance drone missions over Gaza since at least early November, ostensibly for hostage recovery by special forces."

At the time when this was all taking place, U.S. Gen. Pat Ryder reassured the world that these special operations forces were "not participating in [Israel Defense Forces] target development." However, we have since learned that the U.S. Air Force did issue special deployment guidelines for officers headed to Israel on November 21.

"Experts say that a team of targeting officers like this would be used to provide satellite intelligence to the Israelis for the purpose of offensive targeting," Klippenstein and Petti further explain.

According to Lawrence Cline, who served as an intelligence engagement officer in Iraq before retiring, these special operations forces are "probably targeting people, targeting officers."

"What I can see is we've got a lot of global assets in terms of satellites and the like and the Israelis have a lot in terms of more localized radar coverage," he added.

In other words, the U.S. military has been directly killing Palestinian civilians right alongside IDF soldiers, which explains Bushnell's outrage that led to him setting himself on fire in effigy rather than agree to butcher innocent men, women and children in support of "Greater Israel."

"The U.S. is complicit in genocide," wrote someone on X, outraged by these revelations.

"The all-Zionist Biden administration is 100% complicit in the murder of 35,000 Palestinians, including 25,000 women and children," wrote another. "They must face justice one way or another."
