Blinken Heads to Middle East to Build on Israel-Hamas Cease-Fire
"The Middle East. President Biden asked him to go, but only after a ceasefire was in place, ending the latest military conflict between Israel and the Palestinian militant group Hamas. NPR's Michele Kelemen reports. Secretary, Blinken has been cautious about jumping into Middle East diplomacy. He started quietly with phone calls while he was on a trip to the Arctic. Plans for a visit came together only after Israel and Hamas agreed to stop fighting. And White House press secretary Jen Psaki is making clear that Blinken has narrow goals for this trip to Israel, the West Bank, Egypt and Jordan, ensuring that we're creating conditions with our partners in the region. For a sustained ceasefire and also discussing the path toward on rebuilding Gaza. Something that there's a great deal of interest in support and the international community on and they're great needs on the ground. This was the fourth military conflict like this between Israel and Hamas since Hamas took control of the Gaza Strip about 15 years ago. This last episode has taken Gaza back several years.

During the last outbreak of violence in 2014, then Secretary of State John Kerry rushed to Egypt hoping to do some shuttle diplomacy. He stayed in Cairo all week, with little to show as both sides made demands of him and airstrikes and rocket fire continued. This secretary was far more hesitant, says Harland al Gindi Ah, former adviser to Palestinian negotiators. Risk averse is probably an understatement. Secretary Blinken says Israel has the right to defend itself against rocket fire from Gaza. But he also says he wants to make sure Israelis and Palestinians have equal measures of security, peace and dignity. El Guindi says. All those things are lacking for Palestinians that just seems so detached from where

And so they work cooperatively to destroy the west and to destroy conservatives and destroy the country they found an ally in iran wants revenge.

The trio is facing reelection in two thousand twenty two making their opinions particularly important to chuck schumer. But as ed markey formerly pushes for high court expansion resurfacing the popular progressive 'cause in response to the gop's relentless drive to fill court seats. During the trump years it's clear that few of markey's colleagues agree with them while liberal measures that election reform police bias in congressional ethics remain relatively popular with the fifty members. Senate majority expanding. The supreme court is close to dead among the chambers democrats. This is in the category of things that could muster fifty votes and probably couldn't muster forty votes.

One of the topics yesterday was how texas florida and other southern republican led states are seeing declines in covid even as they've got rid of mask mandates and the like and the twitter employees hopefully tacked on but some people think they're fudging data or some such like that is spreading conspiracy theories from the left as a way to explain what's happening.

Now there's this Joseph wolfson from fox news has this usa today appeared to have brazenly allowed retroactive edits. Op ed written by prominent georgia democrat stacey abrams in an effort to water down her previous justification for boycotts. After major league baseball moved. It's all star game from atlanta in a piece published on march thirty first just days before major league announced it was relocating the all star game due to backlash over georgia's election reform bill. That was signed into law. Abram seemed defend the national response to what she called the quote racist classist legislation quote the impassioned response to the racist classes. Bill that is now. The law in georgia is to boycott in order to achieve change abrahams. Originally wrote she continued events hosted by major league baseball world class soccer college sports dozens of hollywood films hanging in the balance at the same time. Activists urged georgians to swear off of hometown products to express our outrage until we hear clear unequivocal statements that show georgia based companies get. What's at stake. I can't argue with an individual's choice to opt for their competition. Then she continued. However one lesson of boycotts is that the pain of deprivation must be. Shared to be sustainable. Otherwise those least resilient bear the brunt of these actions and in the aftermath they struggle to access the victory and boycotts are complicated affairs. That require a long-term commitment to action. I have no doubt the voters of color particularly black. Voters are willing to endure the hardships of boycotts. But i don't think that's necessary yet. I asked you to bring your business to georgia. And if you've are if you're already here stay in fight. Stay in vote. The article was updated april six but her commentary went through a real transformation her revised op-ed ads instead of a boycott. I strongly urge other events and productions to do business in georgia and speak out against our law similar proposals and other states now Matt whitlock republican strategists was the first to sound the alarm over the stealth edits that were made abrahams op. Ed which was being cited by media outlets fat checking republicans in a march thirty first op and usa today abrahams wrote that the advancement of civil rights relied on economic boycotts but cautioned there's a downside boycotts invariably also cost jobs to be sustainable. The pain of deprivation must be shared rather than borne by those who are least resilient. They also require long-term commitment to action. Politifact wrongly claimed. Abram said in the original op ed Not over the fact that stacey abrams published an op. Ed about the georgia. Lost boycotts work. And she wouldn't blame for anyone. She wouldn't blame anyone for boycotting then after the major league baseball move. Us today stealth edited. The op-ed was stronger. Language poison boycotts and now the media is using the stronger.

S and China are the two biggest polluters in the world. Can you tell us the significance of this trip and what pushed back? We've gotten from China on this. It's important it's you know, it's the first attempt to try and for this administration, try and sit down with the Chinese and starts work things out. The problem that America faces is it wants to be able to compartmentalize. Different issues with China. It was going to say, Let's get together and talk about climate and work it out because it's in their best interest, but also stay away from Taiwan and don't fiddle around here and don't do this on the Chinese Don't have that perspective. When it comes to foreign policy. They they don't put things in little boxes and treat them independently. They will not be able to Forget that America criticizes Chinese about other things while asking them for their support. The other thing the Chinese don't say, Well, look, you walked away from the Paris climate deal. You know, we've been plowing on We've been making more more commitments to carbon when you reducing carbon on reducing or the other greenhouse effect, and you spent four years basically going backward. So the Chinese are saying, we're not listening to you until you get your house in order. So America is trying to say We're back on the international stage when it comes to the environmental concerns and the Chinese the same. Well, we never left. So

"john kerry" Discussed on Work in Progress with Sophia Bush
"Hi Everyone Sophia. Bush here welcomed a work in progress where I talked to people who inspire me about how they got to where they are and where. They think they're still going. Hi Everyone I hope you're staying safe and healthy and I'm just sending everybody a little extra love this week. April twenty second is Earth Day and as we stay at home. I'm sure you've all noticed all the news or maybe just looked up and seen bluer skies and cleaner air and I think this serves as a reminder that our actions matter and we can make small changes in big changes in our lives that can truly help to save the planet. Today's guest is very special and I was so excited. Honored to talk to him. It's former secretary of state. John Kerry who has a new initiative called World War zero which is a movement to achieve net carbon zero emissions create millions of new jobs in the process and unite people. Along the way we talk about his time in service. Why working to end the climate crisis is so crucial and much more. He also touches on the twenty twenty election. Why paper ballots are so important and how we can all help. Stop voter suppression. I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did. And you feel inspired.
"john kerry" Discussed on Skullduggery
"Michael ISIKOFF chief. Investigative correspondent for Yahoo News. And I'm Dan Kleinman editor in chief of Yahoo News so yeah. The best laid plans carry was Had been working for some time to mount this major Initiative World War zero. He lines up all these big names has all these big ambitious plans. And of course if you had listened to any public health experts or scientists back three or four months ago they all would have said. Climate change is the major existential threat. We are facing as a country. It's been completely overshadowed now by the pandemic but it's hardly gone away. Okay well first of all this actually in a very small way affected skulduggery as well because we were supposed to interview secretary Kerry about his World War Zero Initiative at South by South West on the podcast stage. We were really looking forward to that. And it was canceled because South by South West was cancelled because of the corona virus pandemic and. I remember just a few weeks ago. Kerry and Casick and Schwarzenegger giving interviews TV interviews in Columbus Ohio to launch this initiative. The pandemic had already started. It hadn't really hit our shores in a big way and they I think they had something like two thousand people gathered for a For their first townhall now now everything they're doing like the rest of us is just virtual and that has got to be tough but I will say look there are some silver linings in all of this. I think for this initiative one of them. Is that the kind of global response to this pandemic which took a while to get off the ground and is still a work in process shows that international action and leadership can actually make a significant difference. That's one and the second point is here. We are in a moment where we are all listening to public health experts and scientists and putting a great amount of credibility in what they say. This is a moment where truth and facts and data are the difference between life and death and that I think has focused a lot of people on this question of science and the importance of listening to science. That is a powerful message for people who are advocating for a response to the climate crisis whether they can kind of sees that and put it in a bottle. It's hard to know but also have to wonder by the way you know to what extent some of what we're doing now such as working at home such as virtual meetings zooming meetings. Everybody's having whether that can carry over after this pandemic begins to subside and we continue with that for the purpose of cutting down on co two emissions. Now the the other side of that if you listen to the conversation that's going right now. The debate over opening up the country as trump likes to say or continuing with some of these restrictive measures to prevent the spread of the disease. I don't think this administration is going to be a mood to make any economic sacrifices for the sake of fighting climate change so it you can cut this in different ways and we'll just have to see what happens well not this administration but there is an election this year in which we may get a new administration That might take a different perspective but certainly the tension there between economic health and growth and doing something in the long-term interests of everybody to curb carbon emissions is Is going to be an issue with US for some time? So why don't we get right to the former secretary of state and hear what he has to say the Okay we now have with us. The former secretary of state the former longtime senator from Massachusetts the former presidential candidate John Kerry secretary Kerry welcome to skulduggery on happy to be with you. Happy to be with you. There's too much skulduggery out there. And that's what keeps us in business so you started this group. World War zero late last fall to try to bring world attention and American attention to the ongoing threat of climate change. No sooner do you start to get off the ground than the corona virus pandemic hits. What has the pandemic done and meant for the plans? You had to focus attention on climate change. Well it's forced us. It has cut off our ability to be able to do significant People events which is what we had started doing. We had a terrific townhall meeting in Columbus. Ohio with former Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and former Governor John of Ohio We had about two thousand people. There was really interactive terrific. Great start to process. We've gotta take around the country for the time being that now has to become virtual digital and so next week we're going to hopefully launch in the context birthday fiftieth anniversary of Earth Day. We hope to do a few town halls with different people in which we will interact. We hope with all those invited and and obviously the audience. is limitless in terms of people. Who could come to the table but We'll see what people decide to do the other thing we're GONNA do which we're always intending to do was have conversations with more than ten million Americans through social media and we're still in the process of raising money and anybody who listens to your broadcast. I hope we'll go to Wilbur. Zero DOT COM and help contribute on a grassroots basis. Because we want to be able to reach the seventy percent of America that says they're deeply concerned about climate change but haven't yet been motivated to engage in the kind of activities To help make a difference so our purpose is to educate to reach out to motivate to energize. People realize that we can make a difference. We still have time to win the battle. Defeat the crisis But we gotta be engaged in order to do it secretary. I know we're going to have a lot of follow up questions on the pandemic and what that reveals about the ability of the global community to react to a crisis which is obviously relevant to what you're doing but I just wanted to back up for a moment and let you talk a little bit about what is unique about this initiative and specifically a saw and some of your kind of promotional literature that you're talking about going into parts of the country where these issues where people have not been all that engaged economically depressed areas military bases clearly. We are also dealing with a kind of chronic polar as political polarization in this country which also affects how the message gets out. It makes it sound a little bit like you think that the climate crisis movement in this country has a bit of a of a branding problem that this is a time when populism is on the rise elites are scorned celebrities are mocked. Are you trying to kind of as part of this initiative rebrand the climate crisis fight? Well we we haven't specifically set out to change That or to criticize or in any way undermine other terrific efforts by people all of whom are thing edited different ways. I mean the young people in our country but absolutely spectacular. And they're the ones who are trying to hold adults to account and I give them enormous Credit Climate Strike Sunrise Movement. These efforts deserve enormous credit. Because they're acting where I don't have that it and they're demanding accountability which is appropriate. So but what we are trying to do. That is different. Is We have people coming to the table to be part of this coalition who had never before come together in that kind of a coalition and who are stepping out to say. Hey wait a minute folks You know we don't want this to fall victim to a whole bunch of of the labels and sort of easy political hits this is real and when you hear this is real from world renowned scientists or military leaders we have Stanley General Stan McChrystal as signed up. He's part of this. He's the leader of Special Forces in style helped us go out get the Assad but he many other military leaders know that this is a threat multiply. The climate change crisis of climate is a threat multiplier that our troops will be called on to deal with some of the issues that arise because of it and they see enormous threats to military readiness to the ability to protect America. So I need when you get a group of people like that. Then you get a group of businesspeople people who are hiring and creating new jobs who are creating the products and Driving our economy. They're stopping and saying. Wait a minute this is gonNA cost business a whole lot more. If we don't get it right this is going to provide artillery to be able to have normal markets in the world. I mean office. People are running out of water places where it's already scarce you're GonNa Have Bass Movement of people you're going to have conflict you're going to have You know security threats. As was all the bad people banging on the door Europe to get into Europe as they were from Syria as refugees but this time from the whole Horn of Africa fails because of climate crisis So I think we have to look ahead here. We have to be part of being leaders is being visionary looking around the corner. What's coming at us in many ways? The Corona virus is an example of that kind of situation. Where if you don't look at it ahead of time if you're not ready to move quickly YOU'RE GONNA wind up spending trillions of dollars. Which is exactly what we're doing picking up on that point. Some people have seen a parallel between the reluctance of some in Washington. Starting with the trump White House to take seriously the warnings of Public Health experts and scientists about the virus particularly in those early months January and February and the skepticism about climate science that We've heard in many quarters in Washington and I just wonder if you see a parallel there. Well there's no yes. There is a parallel. We've had twenty five years of people doubting science claiming on an ideological basis that we don't have to move. We don't have to do things and proposing to Americans completely contrived artificial choice. They say if we do what the people that want to solve WANNA do. We're GONNA hurt our economy. It's GonNa hurt. Your jobs is GonNa take away your quality of life. That's a lie that's a complete and total fabrication of the choice that we face the choice. We actually face is one of making our lives better. Having a higher quality of life being healthier after all the laws of the of the final crisis is the result of pollution. And then people have to remember. It's not some harmless gas or some it's pollution is pollution that goes up into the atmosphere and winds up heating up the planet earth and this has been documented down for years. We just had the hottest January in human history. We just had the hottest day in that January in human history. And if you're looking at the entire year that January fit in you have the hottest year in human history which is part of the hottest decade human history which is followed preceded by the second hottest decade preceded by the third. How this decade? So you know you don't have to be a rocket scientist or nuclear physicists to understand something's happening farmers no this all across. America. People don't ask president remember again. Sal Who I'm sure. Most People America never heard of. He's the president of Palau Pacific Islands. Twenty years ago was sounding this alarm bell and today. He doesn't have the option of mitigation or adaptation. He's trying to figure out where the people of this nation are going to move to. Where are they going to live? This is happening to people all around the world now and so my My hope is that this parallel to what's happened with with coated with corona the first death was in China on December. First when we first moved in our country seventy days have gone by during which the administration just brushed it off. Said it's GonNa go away. You know miracle concur. We'll be your only a few people have it. It'd be one and the president said one person from China and so forth and so on well now. Almost thirty one thousand people have died. This were in America loan as we're talking and and I think it's five hundred seventy or so six hundred. Some thousand are now suffering from Corona virus. The point I'm making is that we used to standard and in the United States where we believe science where we listened to scientists. We didn't take it automatic face value. But we would have comparative analysis. Well guess what in the last twenty years have been more than six thousand? Peer reviewed studies all of them saying human beings and contributed this problem. And it's a problem that's could be catastrophic. There isn't one genuinely peer reviewed. Study that sense to the contrary so you know we. We've got to govern ourselves with thoughtful this but with some baseline of truth. Mike and Dan. I think you know that when used to be able to have those conversations now there's an ideological press which is Trying to deny science and denied the fax do you think Secretary Kerry that. There's a possibly a moment to season here when when scientists like Anthony Vouch e and Deborah burks impress. Oh many Americans met medical doctors and scientists in some sense are the kind of today's rockstars. Are you gonNa try to capitalize on that for the fight against climate change? I capitalize is wrong. Word we're going to do. Ask people who are good validation of people who have the ability to speak out on it to come out and speak out join up that's why we have. Republicans and Democrats alike part of World War. Zero zero is not endorse candidates. We're not going to Be involved directly in an election. What we're going to try to do is educate the boys much people make their own decisions but I think the voices that were assembling people who have come from very diverse backgrounds and diverse careers diverse disciplines. All agreeing that. This is a crisis. When governor case tonight Arnold were in Columbus? We didn't agree on every solution to it but we agreed. It's a crisis we need to. We need to address it and we need to let our democratic process work off the basis of facts. Not Lies Not distortions that Present Americans with the facts when presented with the facts on Corona. Look at what people have been wanting to do hot. Ill stay in their homes for you know more than a month minute. Their activities wear masks watch constantly to try to do social distancing. There's a level of responsibility that people will accept but what people were missing is the solution to climate. Change is energy policy if you're not putting these pollutant gases up in the atmosphere and by the way all over the world people have noticed what the last month has been Mike because some people are seeing blue sky for the first time in years..

Now, if you're just joining us, my guest is John Kerry former Senator and secretary of state. He has a new memoir called every day is extra. President Trump has been trying to undo a lot that the Obama administration did including pulling out of treaties that you were instrumental in writing the Trans-Pacific Partnership. The climate change accord in Paris, the Iran nuclear deal. I've often thought about how hard it is to put together a treaty in how easy it is to undo it or pull out, but but you right that you think treaties just developed a bad reputation that the far right's or treaties as an attack on American sovereignty, including the disabilities treaty that was opposed by the tea party. This is like a UN treaty from December of two thousand twelve America fell six votes short of ratifying. Well, regrettably. This is part of the transformation that has taken place in our nation. The right wing has made it orthodoxy within their party that treaties are a relinquishing of American sovereignty, and that somehow a treaty is going to contribute to quote world government. So the highest standards that we try to apply to one thing or another, even if they're the best thing in the world and America's the only country that does it, and we want other countries to raise their standard. If it's in the context of a treaty, people seem to oppose it nowadays. And that is what happened with the disability street. I write about the story, the poignancy of former United States Senator and majority leader Robert Dole in his wheelchair coming into the floor of the United States Senate for this vote on the disability streaky and all. All that the disability treaty he did was require the countries to raise their standard of accessibility for those who are physically challenged to the gold standard of America. It raised the standard to American standards and other countries all signed up to it. We were the ones who motivated George Herbert Walker, Bush the one hundred associated it, but the right wing in the United States Senate stood firm saying, we're not going to have a treaty. We're not gonna have a treaty disability strategy, and and what happened was right there with Robert Dole and Liddy dole United States Senator, you know, they, they, his own colleagues, rejected this treaty right in front of him. I thought it was one of the most stunning shocking sad moments that underscores where these extremist advocates have taken. The unite. State Senate and they've, they've hijacked it. They've hijacked a great institution. So let's talk a little bit about the Iran nuclear treaty. How did you have any idea that you could talk to Iran and begin a negotiation. I had the idea through conversations that I had with key players in the region and through my belief in diplomacy. And I had neces- ges and indications that ran might be ready to talk, and I thought it was worth testing it. And in diplomacy, you're constantly. I think in need of testing the possibilities. There were countries in the region that wanted us to bomb Iran to prevent any progress on its nuclear program that there were people in America who wanted that as well. We'll you concern that if there wasn't a treaty that the US would be bombing around to stop their nuclear program? Yes, absolutely. And what did you think the outcome of that would be if it happened. Disastrous because the capacity for self delusion had already been demonstrated pretty aptly in the Iraq war. And it seemed to me that having a war as an alternative to diplomacy was an invitation to. Long, long period of of of ace metrical warfare, which would be very ugly, very costly to the region and very dangerous. Give us an example of like one part of the negotiation that was especially tricky to deal with. Well, all parts of it were tricky to do with the be honest with you because we hadn't talked to the Iranians and thirty five forty years, and there was huge mistrust. The right-wing hardliners in Iran were very much against the possibility because they of a treaty because they wanted to nuclear weapon and the president of Iran Ruhani who was trying to move in the direction of more reasonable approach knew that Iran needed to try to join the world and and take a different tack. So we had to construct a treaty that we knew would be attacked that we knew would be haughty suspect that would require the most intrusive inspection and accountability of any agreement ever. And we could not have an agreement for the sake of having agreement had to be one that passed the highest standards in the end. I believe we did that. You know, secretary Mattis was in favor of staying in it. Secretary Tillerson was in favor of staying in it all the keys security people were in favor of staying in it. Only Donald Trump persisted in this notion together with a few people from the region who didn't like at because they wanted to put more pressure on Iran who had a different attitude about it. But what's happened is by getting rid of it by getting the United States out of it. I should say because the Russians Chinese French Germans and British are all staying at as well as ran and ran is living up to it. So only Donald Trump has moved away from this treaty that was working. You spoke with Johnny treaty. Excuse me, I misspoke, Terry. It's a, it's an agreement. It's an executive agreement. Not a treaty when President Trump was on the verge of pulling out of the deal. But before he actually did you apparently spoke to a couple of European leaders. And I think to your Iranian counterpart of odds Zarif about the importance of this agreement, I don't know exactly what what you said to them, but then you, you were accused by some people on the right of violating the Logan act, which says that an American citizen can't interfere in changing American policy. Know what the what it says is you can't. You can't interfere negotiation. You can't negotiate this by the way, came from people who had written a letter to the president of Iran in the middle of our negotiate. Nations saying, you can't, you can't trust this administration. And I mean you wanna talk about influence, but I was not in Goshi hitting the policy of the United States of America. We were. We were a signatory to the agreement. We hadn't pulled out of the agreement and all I did was have conversations with them about what was maybe going to unfold how it would unfold. It's something that Henry Kissinger, Colin Powell Condie rice Mallon Albright, Hillary Clinton all have conversations with leaders in other countries. We have relationships and all I did was the normal conversation of anybody engaged in thoughtful. Dialogue internationally, and it's one more evidence of the president simply doesn't understand the process physician country or our own laws. If you're just joining us, my guest is John Kerry, and he's written a new memoir called every day is extra. Why don't we take a short break here and then talk some more.

"john kerry" Discussed on Fresh Air
"Television advertisements regrettably. Not everybody will remember this. Not everybody was old enough to have heard it when it happened. So this is one of the anti John Kerry ads used in the two thousand four presidential campaign in which veterans speak calling, carry a liar for what he said. And what other said with the official records had said he done as the leader in a swift boat mission. If you have any questions about what John Kerry's Mehta, just spent three minutes with the men who served with him. I served with John Kerry I served with John Kerry John Kerry has not been honest about what happened in Vietnam. He is lying about his record. I know John Kerry is lying about his first purple heart because I treated for that injury. John Kerry lied is bronze star. I know I was there. I saw what happened his account of what happened. And what actually happened are the difference between night and day. John Carey has not been on and he lacks the capacity to lead when the chips were down, you could not count on John, Kerry John Kerry is no war hero. He betrayed all his shipmates. He lied before the Senate, John Kerry betrayed the men and women. He Cirque with and Vietnam unders country. He most certainly did I served with John Kerry John Kerry cannot be trusted. Swift book that rinse with truth is responsible for the content of this advertisement. Okay. Well, I want to specifically ask you about one of the men. There says, I know John Kerry is lying about his first purple heart because I treated him for that injury who who was a. I don't remember his name. I, I just don't remember his name. It might have been the doctor or the aid effort, which who was in the Cameron bay medical facility where they took the shrapnel out of my arm, but. I, I don't think there was any discussion about what happened with him. He would not have known. He wasn't they. He wasn't on the mission. All he did was take the piece of metal out of my arm the that was his job, and I don't know what he's referring to in terms of what he knows. It doesn't know. But the simple bottom line is we were in a very small boat three of us at night and we took enemy under fire and in the course of that, you know the, that's what I got a piece Robbo in my arm, and I had nothing to do with, you know, quote, getting a first, a purple heart or the bronze star. I mean, I listened to that just again now and somebody said, I lied about quote getting Bronco. I didn't even know I was getting a bronze star. The recommendation came from an army captain that I pulled out of the water who weeks after. I left Vietnam apparently put me in for the metal. So I mean, they just made things up. They made them up right, left and center. And people said, I served with John Kerry that means they served in swift boats, but it didn't mean they were on my boat. It didn't mean they were on the mission. It didn't mean they knew what had happened and they weren't in those cases and the guys who were contradicted them. So what they did was they just built this up with little phrases. It was skillfully done as an attack at Disley. I remember being in Ohio and listening to that ad and I called my campaign. Of course, it's guys, I just heard an ad and if I heard that I wouldn't vote for me. So I wanna talk with you about something that you actually did say, but that the message was used against you also in a way that we see done today, you return from the war opposing it because so much. Of the war just seem senseless to you and the South Vietnamese who we were supposed to be defending. You said, didn't seem to want us. They are. They just wanted to live in peace. So when you came home, you became one of the leaders of the Vietnam veterans against the war. You delivered testimony to the Senate Foreign Relations committee, which years later you ended up cheering you deliver testimony and nineteen seventy-one based on part on your experiences and based in part on the experiences of other vets who you'd her testify at a meeting in Detroit organized by a group called the winter soldier campaign, which was also veterans who were opposing the war in Vietnam. And I want to just play a bit of your testimony about atrocities that had been described by vets who committed them, and now we're deeply regretful about it. It's impossible to describe to you exactly what did happen in Detroit, the emotions in the room, the feelings of the men who are reliving their experiences and yet mom, but they did. They relived the absolute horror of what this country in a sense made them do. They told the stories of times that they had personally raped cut off. Ears cut off heads, taped wires from portable, telephones to human genitals and turned up the power cut off liens blown up bodies. Randomly shot at civilians razed villages in the fashion reminiscent of Jinja's con shot cattle
