“Winter Soldiers” to testify before Congress

Glad for this little bit of progressive news. On Thursday, May 15, the Winter Soldier participants have been invited to speak before the United States Congress.

The Congressional Progressive Caucus will host Thursday’s testimony in the Rayburn House Office Building in DC, and will hear testimony on the rules of engagement, the killing and abuse of civilians, the use of drop weapons, and the true consequences of the “surge.”

This is the first time the Winter Soldier platform has been given any credible recognition. Their hearings a couple of months ago got absolutely no play in the MSM and you can bet the administration is not going to want any publicity for these hearings, either. For Bio’s on the speakers and more information go to the IVAW site.
