As I work on a few deadline pieces, here are some good websites to check out: Iraq Veterans Against the War -- This is a group of veterans of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq who are supporting a withdrawal of US troops. I'm not quite sure if that's the best policy, but I haven't watched people getting shot at and killed. A random thought: how devastating would it be to make TV ads with Iraq war veterans lambasting Bush for the deception about WMD and absolute lack of planning for the occupation? Operation Truth -- An officially non-partisan organization started by Iraq war veteran Paul Rieckhoff committed to giving voice to soldiers' grievances. Labor Blog -- Since it's essentially impossible to get the mainstream media to cover labor issues in anything remotely resembling a sustained manner, this new blog should be indispensable. There are a TON of labor issues at stake in this election, not the least among them overtime.
