Three weeks ago, a major event called 'Winter Soldier' was held outside Washington DC to commemorate the fifth anniversary of the Iraq war. 

In three days of gripping testimony, hundreds of veterans of the Iraq war described war crimes that they committed or witnessed in Iraq and Afghanistan.

KBOO Radio was one of a handful of media outlets nationwide that broadcast the hearings live and un-edited.

Most media outlets chose to ignore the event entirely.

KBOO's Jenka Soderberg spoke with Isabel MacDonald, of the media watchgroup FAIR, about the refusal of the new York Times newspaper to give the veterans' testimony any mention at all:

 

Analyst Phyllis Bennis on Petraeus' Statement

Mon, 04/07/2008

 

 General David Petraeus said today that he wants the US army to stay in Iraq at least another year.

Petraeus told two Senate committees that last year's influx of 30 thousand troops in Iraq had helped calm some of the sectarian violence.

 This is the first time in seven months that the General in charge of the US occupation of Iraq has testified to Congress.

  Under his proposal, as many as 140-thousand troops could be in Iraq when voters head to the polls this fall, and the ten-billion dollar a month pricetag of the war would continue indefinitely.

KBOO spoke with political analyst Phyllis Bennis about today's statement by Petraeus.

She agrees that the level of violence is down, but says that this is not because of the surge in US troops:

The Story of Stuff w/Annie Leonard--Consumers & Climate Change

Categories:

Much of what is said about responding to climate change and the coming climate crisis puts the responsibility on the consumer, on the individual.  We're told to buy fluorescent light bulbs, or hybrid cars, or recycled paper, or other products - and that's supposed to somehow save us from massive species extinction.  Or we hear about 'carbon trading', a system that will allow the largest polluters to keep polluting at the same level.

Neither the current administration, nor any of the candidates, have put forward a plan that really recognizes the seriousness of the situation we're in.  At the current rate of climate change, we will face massive species extinction - including the human species - within decades.  The UN Commission on Climate Change has recognized this, the scientific community worldwide has a consensus that this is a reality, yet the US economy continues rushing forward like a steamroller toward this certain death.

But despite the resistance of government and industry, there  are people and groups who are developing a real plan that  can  address and reverse the trend of global climate change.  We'll hear from several of them tonight on this special program on Sustainable solutions to climate crisis.

First, the Story of Stuff, with Annie Leonard.
