U.S. Soldiers Bring Home Stories, Videos of Atrocities – 2/17/2008

“With consumer-grade cameras wielded both by soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan and by family members and the media in Washington, expect some harrowing images and testimony to emerge. Should these videos reach enough Americans, they will reignite the smoldering debate over American military conduct that began with the Abu Ghraib photos and the controversies over Guantanamo.”


Join us at the September 15th demonstration

Sept15 button

On Saturday, September 15, tens of thousands of people from across the country will gather at 12 noon at the White House (north side in Lafayette Park) and then march to the Capitol (west side) to call for an end to the Iraq war — and for impeachment of Bush and Cheney. A map of the march route and other event details can be found here.

Join us for a quick coffee and breakfast at either Savory Cafe (the one at 7071 Carroll Avenue, up the hill from the gazebo in Takoma Park) around 10:30 am, and then we will walk down to the Metro together. Bring your IMPEACH THEM signs, banners, t-shirts etc. (If you miss us and want to try to find us at the demonstration, call 240-462-5973.)

Speaker and march co-chairman Ramsey Clark strongly supports impeachment, and the impeachment group is a major co-sponsor of the demonstration. Clark:

Each and every one of us must do all that we can to support the major Peace/Impeachment demonstration in Washington, DC on September 15, 2007, backed by more than a million votes for impeachment, and accelerating… Only if we do our part might the rest of the world again believe, as it usually has, and has always wanted to do, that the American people are their friends, it is their government that is the problem.

Clark also makes his case for impeachment at the web site.

Readers to Washington Post: Constitution is No Laughing Matter

WASHINGTON, DC: Hundreds of outraged readers flooded The Washington Post on Wednesday with web comments on Dana Milbank’s dismissive column about Rep. Dennis Kucinich’s resolution to impeach the Vice President. The Post’s decision to place the satirical article on page A-2 rather than in the Op-Ed pages or in the the Style section exhibits a dramatic departure from the tradition of journalistic objectivity.

The article reads like an item in an undergraduate campus newspaper. From the first line Milbanks makes no attempt to hide his contempt for the Congressman. It begins with an attempt at irony: “I do not stand alone,” Dennis Kucinich said as he stood, alone, in front of a cluster of microphones yesterday evening.

The column includes no information on the content of the Articles of Impeachment, nor does it even include the resolution’s bill number (H. Res 333) for those readers interested in seeing for themselves what Milbanks finds so hilarious about the bill. Instead, Milbank chooses to disparage the Congressman’s appearance, referring more than once to his small stature, and even making a bizarre conjecture at Kucinich’s hair product of choice.

The Post’s editors must have assumed that its readers would pile on to be included in the fraternity prank. Instead, the response to this Imus-esque misreading of public sentiment was over fifteen pages of comments, most of them from readers who were astonished and offended by the tone of the article, many of them calling for Milbanks’ termination from the paper. As rant wrote on April 2:… illustrated by the dismissive tone of this article, Reporters seem to think that no treason, even dragging America into a war under false premises, is too large it cant be overlooked if it goes against what the word in the cocktail party circuit is in Washington.
