"John Edwards Criticized for 'Trashing' Troops on Memorial Day"


ACRU Staff


June 1, 2007 features a story regarding the protests that John Edwards and his supporters staged on Memorial Day in protest of the Iraq War. (See “John Edwards Criticized for ‘Trashing’ Troops on Memorial Day”) Edwards said that the “war on terror” was merely a bumper-sticker slogan used to justify failed policies. The story relies on its content with an interview the author conducted with the ACRU’s Legal Director, Peter Ferrara.

As Peter is quoted in the article,

“These Memorial Day events are not about the war in Iraq, so they’re not a place to protest. They’re about celebrating the sacrifice and the honor and the glory of our American soldiers and people who serve in the Armed Forces. So, you are tarnishing that with these foolish protests.”
