Mark Danner: Words in a Time of War/Scott Ritter on Repudiation

By Remy Benoit

From Mark Danner at Tom Dispatch Words in a Time of War.

From Ann Scott Tyson and John Ward Anderson, The Washington Post at Truthout Attacks on US Troops in Iraq Grow in Lethality, Complexity. What is your position on all of this? Feel free to share your thoughts. That is what democracy is - lest we forget that - freedom of speech and conscience. If the mass media continues to refuse to address real problems with real investigative reporting, that function will have to be served by the people, at least until they demand that the press resume its real function as the "Fourth Estate." That to is up to you, a collective you, to demand - information - not entertainment. The democracy is at stake - that is the real American hero - the Constitution.

It is also up to us to demand proper, respectful care for the Veterans we constantly allow to be made.

From Scott Ritter and Truthdig at Veterans for Common Sense Editorial Column: Repudiation, Not Impeachment, for Iraq War and Constitutional Violations.
