If one were to task the man or woman on the street if they knew that a Winter Soldier conference was held just a few months ago, chances are you would be met with a blank stare or asked what you were talking about. Former winter soldier John Kerry was asked if he was going to attend the gathering but instated that he knew nothing of the event, which is not surprising considering only one media source even mentioned it. The Washington Post had buried the conference deep in “local events" column. So it is little surprise that the great PR firm which calls itself “the media" can keep the argument of the Iraq war going under the rather superficial banner of supporting the troops or supporting a withdraw. To do so they continue to use similar propaganda campaigns to those that were unearthed by the New York Times a week ago, which by the way bordered on a jail able offence which violates laws first passed in 1951 and have been repassed every since. Further more, by white washing this conference, the “support our troop" argument becomes a little hollow considering that not one TV channel nor radio station outside of WBAI and the other Pacifica outlets even mentioned the testimony of troops who spoke so patiently about their regrets and long term disabilities due to the war. So instead of me writing, I urge you to click or cut and past the links below. The words of those who were their say more than I could possibly type.
