Winter Soldier

This past weekend, Thursday the 13th through Sunday the 16th, members of Iraq Veterans Against the War gathered in Washington to speak out against the war in Iraq.

These men will be called traitors. Their patriotism will be revoked by those who think it is theirs to dole out. Yet, all they've done is recount what they've experienced and done in Iraq. And for this, on the fifth anniversary of the beginning of the war, the media greeted them with silence; the Defense Department with defiance; the public with apathy.

There's too much content to cut-and-paste but I would encourage anyone to either watch the videos at IVAW or read some of the transcripts at Democracy Now.
