WINTER SOLDIER BLACKOUT CONTINUES: Look in the Mirror America!!!!!

By Kevin Stoda, Kuwait

As there are reports across the globe of a USA-wide blackout of major media news from the WINTER SOLDIERS presentations or soldiers’ testimonies on the  Iraq and Afghanistan War at the Labor College outside of Washington D.C. this week, it is time to recall that only one week earlier, George W. Bush told American soldiers in Afghanistan that if he was 20 or 30 years younger he’d love to join them. HOGWASH!

What a ludicrous claim, eh?  The man did everything he could to stay out of Vietnam in the 1960s and 1970s—i.e. when the original WINTER SOLDIER hearings took place.

Has George Orwell’s predicted-world come fully into reality in the U.S.A. in 2008?

Only the independent media, like REAL NEWS NETWORK  http://therealnews.com/web/index.php

  , is doing its job.

Otherwise, only the Huffington News seems to have noticed this gaping absence, despite complaints appearing all over the web, like on YAHOO discussion lists.

Even the BBC’s coverage has not been as good as one would expect from a respected international news network.

This week’s sad and truthful testimonies from Iraqi and Afghanistan during the 5th anniversary of George W. Bush’s illegal pre-emptive attack on Iraq in 2003 should be on the evening news in America for ten minutes a day all this week—or all month till Bush is impeached and the boys and girls of America are called home.

The silence from America is deafening. 

No corporate U.S. media was on hand in 1971 for the original WINTER SOLDIER in Michigan. But, why repeat that error?

Now the world’s-most-expensive media conglomerates, like CNN, FOX, ABC, NBC, and CBS are missing the aircraft carrier of truth in our nation’s harbor
