Mother Jones reported in a recent cover story about U.S. soldiers who have served in Iraq are speaking out on the war upon their return, and, in some cases, are refusing to go back. Join two Iraq war veterans, Mike Hoffman and Paul Rieckhoff, as they voice their concerns on the war. Hoffman, co-founder of Iraq Veterans Against the War, is an outspoken opponent of the war and the Bush administration's policies, and has emerged as a leader within the contemporary peace movement. Reickhoff's organization, Operation Truth, supports the troops - both active duty and veterans - by providing a place for returning front-line soldiers to document their experiences through first-hand reports, and by organizing support in Congress and the public for a military agenda that ensures the safety and well-being of active-duty soldiers and veterans alike.
