Radioactivity: Live Call-In (Thursday) | Listen to this entire show:

WE OFTEN GET THE VIEWS OF REPORTERS AND GENERALS ABOUT THE IRAQ INVASION- BUT WHAT DO COMBAT SOLDIERS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT THE WAR?

NEXT WE’LL HEAR THE SECOND PART OF AN INTERVIEW WITH A 22 YEAR OLD COMBAT VETERAN, CLIFTON HICKS. WE HEARD THE FIRST PART OF THIS INTERVIEW ON TUESDAY. IN THAT INTERVIEW HICKS TALKED ABOUT THE LIMITED BASIC TRAINING HE RECEIVED, ABOUT THE LACK OF SANITATION FOR THE PEOPLE OF IRAQ, THE KILLING OF CIVILIANS BY U.S. SOLDIERS, DRUG USE BY MILITARY CONTRACTORS, HIS KEEPING OF A BLOG THAT DESCRIBED WHAT HE WITNESSED IN IRAQ… AND WE LEFT OFF THE INTERVIEW WITH CLIFTON HICKS WHEN I ASKED HIM WHETHER HE HAD EVER WITNESSED TORTURE OF IRAQIS.
