A conversation with Karen Meredith
Karen Meredith's son, Lt. Kenneth Ballard, was killed in Najaf, Iraq on May 30, 2004. Ever since, Karen has thrown herself into anti-war activism and real support for our troops.
In this conversation, we'll talk about where the American wars are headed, especially in light of the very recent Congressional appropriation of an additional $33 billion for the escalation in Afghanistan.
We'll also talk about the growing scandal at Arlington National Cemetery, where as many as 6,600 burial mistakes have been made.
