The First US Army Officer to Refuse Iraq Deployment
23 Jun 2006
"I am whole-heartedly opposed to the continued war in Iraq, the deception used to wage this war, and the lawlessness that has pervaded every aspect of our civilian leadership."
Lt. Watada refused Iraq deployment today

by Courage to Resist Friday

U.S. Army First Lieutenant Ehren K. Watada reported to duty at 2:00 a.m. early this morning and refused orders to move to the adjacent McChord Air Force Base to prepare to fly to Iraq. Lt. Watada believes that the war and occupation in Iraq are illegal, and thus participation in the war is also illegal. At this time he has been restricted to base and has been ordered to have no communication with non-military personnel.
