Dear AAPINCDP Members,
You are cordially invited to “Reminiscences of 1971 – An evening with Joseph L Galloway”, to be held on September 16, 2016 at 1328, Magnolia Bend Loop, Cary, NC 27519. Joe Galloway, a legendary war hero, historian, writer of a best selling book-“We Were Soldiers”, who is the most respected military correspondent of US Department of Defense. Perhaps, Mr. Galloway, is happened to be only US military journalist, who visited Dhaka in 1971, witnessed Pakistani Army’s atrocity and heinous crime, vividly protested and expressed his deep concern against in discriminant killing and preemptive attack on thousands of innocent Bangalees.
Mr. Galloway shared his deep concern against Pakistani massacre with late US Ambassador Archer Blood, who was stationed at Dhaka in 1971. When Mr. Joe Galloway’s plane took off from Dhaka, Joe mentioned “I still remember “Fear, fire and the sword are the only things holding East and West Pakistan together … ” Late Ambassador Blood was the most supportive US diplomat to our liberation war and expressed strong disagreement against the polices of President Richard Nixon and national security adviser Henry Kissinger. Mr. Galloway wrote in his memoir ” Blood did not sign that cable, but he added a footnote subscribing fully to the views it expressed and then wrote prophetically: “I believe the most likely eventual outcome of the struggle under way in East Pakistan is a Bengali victory and the consequent establishment of an independent Bangladesh.” He argued strongly against “pursuing a rigid policy of one-sided support to the likely loser.”..
Mr. Joe Galloway is the living legend and true friend of our liberation war, and as of today, he neither revealed his disturbed experience and Pakistani’s heinous crime to any press core nor he shared with any Bangladeshi group any where in the world. Mr. Galloway’s untold stories about Nixon Administration and Pakistani regime is monumental, bedazzling, and could be engraved as an opening era of new episodes in depicting how US journalists were supportive to the cause of our great liberation war.
Mr. Joe Galloway will be visiting us at 1328, Magnolia Bend Loop, Cary, on September 16, 2016. Perhaps, we will be the first Bangladeshi community residing in USA, who will have the rare opportunity in listening and sharing untold reminisces from one of the most respected and acclaimed war hero, journalist and true friend of our liberation war “Joseph L Galloway”.
Date: Friday, September 16, 2016 Time: 7:00 ~ 10:00pm Venue: 1328, Magnolia Bend Loop Cary , NC 27519
