Petition to ban intelligence involvement in public health campaigns

14 January 2013

A petition has been created which asks the Obama Administration to ban intelligence involvement in public health campaigns:

We petition President Obama to amend Executive Order 12333, adding a paragraph after the prohibition on covert action related to US domestic politics. The amendment should ban persons in the intelligence community or acting on their behalf from joining or participating in any activity directly related to the provision of child public health services.

Charles Kenny of the Center for Global Development provides background on the petition.
