Earlier in the day, James Gilligan, a member of IVAW, said, “We have a blind media [and] deaf candidates, but [IVAW] has a voice that will be heard.”

Last night, a so-called maverick and a supposed candidate for change refused IVAW’s pleas to be able to shift the debate to focus on the Iraq War and veterans returning home.

Bob Schieffer, a veteran in the world of news media, continued the media blackout of IVAW by refusing to respond to IVAW’s letter and by choosing to not ask any question directly addressing IVAW’s demands.

Are we a country at peace with being at war? When news media and presidential candidates ignore veterans with righteous demands and when Americans do not know or do research to find out that a group of veterans are being utterly disrespected, it definitely seems like that is the case.
