On Contact: Truth Of War With Danny Sjursen

On the show this week, Chris Hedges discusses ‘Ghost Riders of Baghdad: Soldiers, Civilians, and the Myth of the Surge’ with Danny Sjursen, a combat veteran and West Point graduate.

“We talk a lot about moral courage at West Point. It’s a term they throw around but they’ve largely hijacked it. It is much harder in a lot of ways to speak against the tide and obviously you’ve done that for your entire career. There are real costs – emotional, professional – and it’s a difficult thing. And I think the fact that it’s so rare. I mean, name five generals who have spoken out publicly against these wars even in retirement.”
