Matthis Chiroux is another AWOL soldier like Ehren Watada. He was recruited as an army journalist to report on events from the US military’s perspective. Now when he is supposed to deploy to Iraq he is refusing due to the supremacy clause in the constitution, saying that war is illegal and imperialistic.

I recently heard another soldier of a soldier speaking out. Private Brandon Neely was stationed at Guantanamo and spoke out last month about what he and other guards at the prison camp were supposed to do. His testimony can be found on a UCDavis website.
