Join Robert Watata, Lt. Watada's father, on Sunday, August 27th 4 – 6 pm!
Robert Watada is traveling around the country speaking about his son’s case. “Some people do not understand that an officer swears allegiance to the constitution, and has a duty to disobey an unlawful order. The army is most concerned about the court of public opinion.”
“The wholesale slaughter and mistreatment of the Iraqi people is not only a terrible moral injustice but a contradiction of the Army's own law of land warfare. My participation would make me party to war crimes…" Ehren Watada
