Letter Calling for Airdrops of Food and Medicine in New York Times authored by Medea Benjamin and Stanley Heller

Re “Airdrops Called Too Risky to Help Starving Syrians” (news article, Jan. 20): Representative Eliot L. Engel’s reasons to refrain from airdropping food and medicine to besieged Syrians are faulty. Among others, he is afraid that drops might fall into the hands of terrorists, but we’re talking about food, not guns.

Ms. Benjamin is co-founder of CodePink, a peace and justice organization. Mr. Heller is administrator of Promoting Enduring Peace.
