Winter Soldiers Investigation coverage by the community

This piece is written by Rebecca of Sex and Politics and Screeds and Attitude, Cedric of Cedric's Big Mix, Kat of Kat's Korner, Betty of Thomas Friedman is a Great Man, Mike of Mikey Likes It!, Elaine of Like Maria Said Paz, Marcia of SICKOFITRADLZ and Wally of The Daily Jot. Our purpose is to provide text primarily for those unable to listen to Iraq Veterans Against the War Winter Soldiers Investigation either due to computer issues or due to hearing issues. Community members have transcripts they can access via community newsletters. Those who are not community members can refer to the following. We will also be adding a link to C.I.'s Monday "snapshot" later in the week because it will address Sunday's hearings.

Thursday's session.

"I Hate The War" -- Camilo Mejia's Thursday statements are noted in summary form (and it's also noted how few are bothering to get the word out on IVAW's hearings).

Friday's testimonies.

"Iraq snapshot" -- Hart Vinges, Jason Washburn, Jon Turner, Eli Wright, Eric Estenzo, Kelly Dougherty, Antonia Juhasz and Adrienne Kinne. C.I. provides an overview of Friday's panels through the afternoon (ending with the panel that ended at 3:3o pm).
