Winter Soldier Investigation - March 2008

Winter Soldier Investigation - Iraq & Afghanistan: Hype and Advertising

  • The original IVAW statement about Winter Soldier Investigation (WSI)-Iraq and Afghanistan as it appeared in November 2007.
  • The current IVAW statement on WSI, significantly toned down on the atrocity rhetoric. See here.
  • "Iraq Vets Prepare Atrocity Testimony" from Sir! No Sir! - Feb 3, 2008
  • “The goal of to show that systematic government policies are to blame for the myriad atrocities in Iraq and Afghanistan.” - The Indypendent - Feb 4, 2008 (The link in my original post no longer works but the story can be found in the Google cache.)
  • "War crimes have been identified, and once again, politicians and generals repeat history by blaming 'a few bad apples' for such atrocities, rather than examining the military policies that destroyed Vietnam then and are destroying Iraq and Afghanistan now." - Vietnam Veterans Against the War
  • "Maine Veterans For Peace invites you to a fund raising party to benefit Winter Soldier, the public war crimes investigation being organized by Iraq Veterans Against the War..." - Peace Action Maine - Feb 22, 2008

I would like to get some guys on my blogtalk radio show on March 16th who were at the Winter Soldier II Investigation - both outside and inside, if it's possible...I was referred to you by Robin at the Chickenhawk Express.

My email is caoilfhionn1 at gmail dot com.

I will note that advertising is a funny thing-that people can only be responsible for what they actually themselves speak or put out, and not what other people do.

If other people wish to publish that all Winter Soldier is is a war-crimes investigation, that is their prerogative. However, they will surely be disappointed when we start talking about how the Iraq war has hurt our military readiness, or how veterans have been mistreated.

"If other people wish to publish that all Winter Soldier is is a war-crimes investigation, that is their prerogative."

Not the point, Sarge! IVAW members themselves, the previous IVAW Winter Soldier page, the VFP under whose 501(c)3 IVAW operates as a non-profit, and numerous anti-war left organs who have done so in contact and support of IVAW have consistently HIGHLIGHTED the atrocity theme!

If IVAW has, at all, been asking these groups and their own members to back off that kind of thing, give us a link to it!

"I’m a member of the Iraq Veterans Against the War...I’m going to Washington, D.C. for the winter soldier hearings from March 13-16. Fifty members from the Iraq Veterans Against the War will testify to war crimes they witnessed or even participated in and I’ll be there in support."

IVAW member Harvey Tharp, published yesterday in the Yemen Times! He didn't get the memo, Sarge!
