Winter Soldier 2008
Some things you will not see on corporate news; soldiers' flag covered coffins, reporters embedded with Iraqis and Winter Soldier. There is terrific coverage from independent media like Free Speech TV, though. I spoke briefly with Asheville's IVAW chapter president, Jason Hurd, Friday night. He could not speak long, they were about to have a debriefing about the days events. We will air some of the testimony on WPVM's Veterans' Voices in the coming weeks.
In the meantime, here are a few of the independent media's coverage of Winter Soldier in no particular order:
Veterans groups offer different views of conflict
Winter Soldier: Military Command Failures at War, Deserting Vets at Home
Winter Soldier: Bitter truths from those who know
Excellent blogger coverage at Third Estate Sunday Review
Winter Soldier Testimonials
Winter Soldier Testimonial from WarComesHome.org
A CNN search does not find one thing about Winter Soldier. There was more important news, I guess. After all, there was a crane collapse in NY, they are attacking Obama's church, tornado in Atlanta, abandoned puppies found a home and Paris Hilton is looking for a new BFF.
How can we get these people out of their comas?
The BBC is actually reporting about the Bleak picture of Iraq conditions.
Philly IVAW march to Valley Forge before Winter Soldier
Is this the beginning of something bigger? Some greater movement towards national consensus? Will it get uglier before we see the olive branch of peace extended? There are simply too many questions in this world gone mad.
The chickenhawks certainly have their feather's ruffled about this:
Michelle Malkin just squawkin'
This ain't hell make snide remarks
