Hundreds of veterans are gathering this weekend in Washington D.C. to testify against war crimes committed by U.S. occupation forces in Iraq and Afghanistan, war crimes they have witnessed and in some cases, participated in.
The stories of brutality, torture and murder are harrowing but must be heard.
These atrocities are the direct consequence of US foreign policy. The truth about these wars are being told by those on the ground who were immersed in it, day in and day out.
Listen to war veterans, before the media, before the politicians, before anybody else.
