The True Cost Of Bush’s War
In March, Army Sgt. Kelly Dougherty testified at Winter Soldier about not wanting to die for Kellogg Brown & Root. Today, she reminded Congress what it will vote for when it inevitably approves another $160 billion for the war. “Every day that the occupation continues, more men, women and children will be killed, maimed and forced to flee their country as refugees,” Dougherty said. “More veterans will return home with lifelong scars, emotional and physical.”
Before anyone accuses these brave soldiers and Marines of lying — like the swine of the right did in the 1970s — Dougherty said that everyone was prepared to testify under oath, but could not because the Congressional Progressive Caucus is not an actual Congressional committee.
