Speaking Truth to Power

Investigative journalist and historian Gareth Porter spoke at the Diana Wortham Theatre Saturday night, April 9, as part of the Truth to Power presentation. Sponsored by such groups as Veterans for Peace, the program included first-hand accounts of the Iraqi and Afghanistan war from several young veterans, an overview of what Pres. Dwight D. Eisenhower called the “military-industrial complex,” and a call to action by musician and peace activist David Lamotte.
