Subject: Winter Soldier hearings

Has anyone else heard about or followed the Winter Soldier hearings?
They have received no coverage at all in the mainstream media.

The hearings involve testimony from soldiers who have returned from Iraq
and Afghanistan about what really goes on over there.

They ended only a few days ago, so it is too soon for transcripts to be
available. Nevertheless, there are some excerpts online (Google "Winter
Soldier 2008"). The shocking thing is that the testimony is pretty much
exactly the same as the testimony at the original Winter Soldier 1971
hearings about the Vietnam War.

Tragically, nothing at all has changed since Vietnam! The soldiers are
not better trained, they are not better disciplined, they are not better
commanded. The rules of engagement are just as flexible, created for
convenience, rather than for discipline.

When will they ever learn?

Keith
