    Veterans Arrested, Trampled at Presidential Debate

    Editor’s note: As usual, the corporate media did not find this story worthy of notice.

    One hour before the final presidential debate of the 2008 campaign, fourteen members of IVAW marched in formation to Hofstra University to present questions for the candidates. IVAW had requested permission from debate moderator Bob Schieffer to ask their questions during the debate but got no response.

    Segment on the protest aired on Democracy Now!

    The contingent of veterans in dress uniforms and combat uniforms attempted to enter the building where the debate was to be held in order to ask their questions but were turned back by police. The IVAW members at the front of the formation were immediately arrested, and others were pushed back into the crowd by police on horseback. Several members were injured, including former Army Sergeant Nick Morgan who suffered a broken cheekbone when he was trampled by police horses before being arrested.

    This is no laughing matter, but any thinking person has to be outraged at what is happening in America today. Do you realize that either McCain or Obama will be elected President in November? It baffles the mind.

    It's a pretty sad situation, it was a non-violent protest and the police basically assaulted these people.

    IVAW = Iraq Veteran's Against War, in case anybody wondered.

    The same thing happened in 1972.

    I don't think McCain was on any of the horses. Your level of partisanship is astounding.

    If his people didn't tell him that his own fellow vets were outside, or, if he knew and he ignored them, that is why I said that.

    Sheesh.....is it hard being that stupid?

    If you want to place blame on McCain you have to place equal blame on Obama. Neither one of them wanted to have to answer the questions the IVAW would have asked them.
