Winter Soldier Update

Read Jonn Lilyea's round-up at This Ain't Hell: Winter Soldier; my impressions, an AAR (After Action Report). Jonn was live-blogging WSI.

Read Bruce Kesler’s take and comparison to WSI 1971: Elmer Gantry Need at Winter Soldier II. Bruce was the founder of the Vietnam Veterans for a Just Peace in 1971, the anti-Vietnam Veterans Against the War.

What I would call Boyle's Razor has been vindicated:
The Winter Soldier stories will follow a familiar pattern. Wartime events that are often both legal and moral, but that may have disturbing or tragic consequences out of the realm of normal civilian experience are deliberately mischaracterized by IVAW activists to put them in the worst possible light.
