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.”
