Cindy Corrie, President of the Rachel Corrie Foundation, discusses the civil lawsuit against the State of Israel and its Ministry of Defense for the unlawful killing of her daughter Rachel in 2003, the strange operating practices of Israel’s court system – including privacy screens for some witnesses and a casual disregard for perjury, the contradictory testimony of the bulldozer driver who caused Rachel’s death, assurances from U.S. officials in the State Department and Vice President’s Office that they really do care about justice for Rachel and flotilla-activist Furkan Dogan, the dismissal of Corrie et al. v. Caterpillar on the grounds that the lawsuit interfered with Executive Branch policymaking and how a strong and immediate U.S. response to Rachel’s killing could have made Israel think twice about starting the Gaza War and flotilla raid.
