Lt. Watada Update

Last Thursday we reported to you the story of Lt. Watada of the United States Army who made headlines by being one of the first active officers to publicly denounce the war and state that he would not deploy to Iraq with his brigade. Lt. Watada went through with his intentions Thursday morning by refusing orders to move to the nearby Air Force base to prepare for deployment. Lt. Watada’s attorney Eric Seitz stated, “This morning Lt. Watada has been restricted to base without any actual charges or proper process. By placing a complete gag order on Lt. Watada, the military has again shown that their first concern is silencing Lt. Watada's speech in opposition to the illegal war in Iraq. We will immediately challenge these highly questionable and improper restrictions." For more please visit
