On Veterans Day, 15 Vets of Iraq and Afghanistan Face Trial for Antiwar Protest
Host: Amy Goodman
Today, on Veterans Day, we turn to the voices of veterans who are speaking out about the crimes they committed and the impact of the war on their lives. Fifteen antiwar veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan pleaded not guilty Monday to charges of disorderly conduct at a protest last month outside the final presidential debate. We speak to IVAW member Sgt. Matthis Chiroux, who refused an Iraq deployment after fighting in Afghanistan; and Aaron Glantz, an independent journalist who reported extensively from Iraq and has been covering the stories of American military veterans since his return.
