Winter Soldier Mark 2

Please check out the videos of testimony by Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW), at the Winter Soldier Testimony, held March 13-16. It's very moving, especially when you hear soldiers describing the atrocities and abuses they were involved in, and when they apologize to the Iraqi people. No doubt there is material here to make a film as powerful as the original Winter Soldier, the account of the VVAW Winter Soldier Investigation held in February 1971. Don't miss it if you've not seen it.

I've seen no media coverage to speak of, but the BBC did cover it. (The report is marred only by an attempt to be "even-handed.")
