Wednesday, June 20, 2007, 9:15 a.m. - 10:15 a.m. in Room 2

A war based on lies. A pre-emptive attack that violated the Nuremberg principles. Torture. Wiretapping. Signing statements. Secret meetings. Partisan manipulation of justice.

How should we respond? Wait to win in 2008? File war crimes charges? More subpoenas? Put the "I"-word on the table?
With Laura Flanders of Air America, Steve Cobble of, Tim Carpenter of Progressive Democrats of America or David Swanson of, and Matthew Rothschild of the Progressive magazine.

TAKE BACK the right not to be sent into an aggressive war for greed and power, killing and displacing millions, putting us all in danger.
