This evening a friend sent me links to two YouTube videos of the takeover of the National Archives two years ago by the Iraq Veteran Against the War.  One of the veterans (I think it’s Gordon Sturrock) gives an unforgettable speech about how we need to reestablish democracy in this country and arrest George W. Bush and Dick Cheney.

The videos are at

The first one was taken during the IVAW takeover of the National Archives, and the second has an awesome speech with a prediction about the elections.

Ben Thompson made a promise that he would talk about what he saw in Abu Ghraib. On Saturday, September 27th, he kept that promise, testifying at the local Winter Soldier event in Madison Wisconsin. Members from around the midwest joined Thompson to talk about their experiences in Iraq and Afghanistan, and to continue the work IVAW started last March at Winter Soldier: Iraq and Afghanistan outside Washington DC.
