NO LIES RADIO will broadcast LIVE the Winter Soldier hearing on Capitol Hill, where nine members of Iraq Veterans Against the War will testify under oath before the Congressional Progressive Caucus about rules of engagement, the killing and abuse of civilians, the use of drop weapons, and the true consequences of the troop "surge". The coverage of the special hearing to the Congressional Progressive Caucus will be hosted by Aimee Allison and Aaron Glantz of KPFA, part of the team that recently was nominated for a Project Censored award for KPFA's coverage of the Winter Soldier gathering in Silver Springs, Maryland this March. Hearing participants will include CPC Co-Chairs Congresswoman Lynn Woolsey, Barbara Lee, and Maxine Waters.

This broadcast is another program in NO LIES RADIO/KPFA/Pacifica's recent coverage of returning veterans' issues, including "Winter Soldier: Iraq and Afghanistan" and "The Crisis in Veterans' Healthcare."

Off subject, but...

I don't know where else to comment on a non-entry.

What happened to the info and (hopefully) feedback about the "11th of the month" get-together in San Francisco? I took part in it with two of my friends, one of whom said it was the best "peace march" she'd been to in 10 years. As far as I can tell, all the previous articles about it have disappeared, and there's no reporting back on how it went.

By the way, it was great: About 50 people met in the Panhandle and marched about a mile up Haight Street to the Golden Gate Park bandshell, chanting, singing, banners flying, and passing out DVDs and flyers.

And that's a BIG if... if the media covers this to the extent that they should, it could end the war. Maybe.

Edit: Hmmmm... Looking, looking, looking, looking, looking, looking, looking... what a surprise. The media didn't cover it.

Why isn't Dick Cheney in prison?
