Northwest Winter Soldier, hosted by Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW).

Speakers ranging from soldiers and Marines to spouses and
parents spoke at Seattle’s town hall in late May and told stories that
have rarely been reported in the mainstream media.

Speakers described the widespread dehumanization that occurred during their
service. For instance, Iraqis are referred to by epithets like “raghead,” said
the vets.

We'll hear part 2 of this show.

After five years of trials, appeals, and retrials, he was acquitted of all charges.
