08-02-2007 23:00

A first-hand report from the trial in Fort Lewis, Tacoma, Washington, another in the continuing series of historic trials of American military resisters to the Iraq War. Contrary to the current corporate spin, the judge was
doing just the opposite of "protecting Lt. Watada's rights" by declaring a mistrial.

Rather, the judge did not want this case to go to any factfinder who had any chance of being fully informed of Lt. Watada's belief that the war in Iraq is illegal. For more on the Watada trial and other resisters, go to
