PFC LaVena Johnson UPDATE

I have posted a number of times on the tragic death of PFC LaVena Johnson and today found a recent news report updating us on the progress of the mounting suspicion and investigation into her death, which I believe was murder. Please watch the video and if you haven't already done so, please sign the petition to put pressure on the pentagon to right this injustice to one of our brave fallen.

Thanks for the update, Hope - let's see if a black soldier can get a hearing.

A Black, female soldier. Yes, let's see.

Well, Jessica Lynch got to be part of a dog and pony show.

To have such forthright friends and such a determined father, she must have been a very exceptional woman. I hope the family finds answers - thanks for covering this story.

But you're absolutely right - they can't bury the rape realities deep enough, since forever.

This is slightly off topic, but not much. On the wider subject of Bu$hCo™'s alleged 'support' for the troops. I know you saw my post today (Criminal Intent)on the explosive Greg Palast story based on emails inadvertently sent to RNC.com instead of RNC.org.

Well Station agent has followed up with his own post (Attorney Purge...) with a podcast of Palast being interviewed by Randi Rhodes. Palast explains that the so-called 'caging lists' in the emails show that an effort was being made to deny voting rights to black soldiers serving in Iraq.

Bastards!! Dirty, rotten rat bastards!

Thanks for the linkies SBT, you attention to detail and dogged determination give me hope yet. I went over and looked at SA's post, I still have goosebumps. I have heard so much on this topic here in "our world," but still almost nothing in the MSM. The shit gets deeper and deeper and the American public continues to slumber. I can only wonder in horror about what this is gonna look like once this administration pulls the rug out. I have the feeling it'll be something like the tablecloth being yanked with a full table of dishes trick gone bad.
