Opponents of Iraq war rally around Lt. Watada

Earlier this month, Watada revealed that he intended to refuse orders to head out to Iraq in what he believes is an illegal war of occupation.
Watada said he, too, would try to mount a case about the legality of the war under international law and American law.
And during a news conference for Watada last Monday, retired Army Col. Ann Wright said officers have the right to disobey illegal orders under principles established during the Nuremberg trials.

Thanks also to Shannon who sent me the link to a clip about this unsung hero.
