Three Courageous Americans Tabbed for Prestigious Award

President Jimmy Carter has been awarded The Ridenhour Courage Prize in recognition of his life-long defense of the public interest, his passion for social justice, and the courage he has displayed in speaking forthrightly on contentious and controversial subjects.

(This is gonna make heads explode all over the Zionist/Fascist world.)

Donald Vance has won The Ridenhour Prize for Truth-Telling. An American contractor turned FBI whistle-blower in Iraq, he was detained by American troops and held at the notorious Camp Cropper for over three months. Since being released by the US military without explanation, Vance has come forward to tell his story and call for accountability.

Rajiv Chandrasekaran is being presented with The Ridenhour Book Prize for Imperial Life in the Emerald City, a work of exemplary reportage that takes us behind the barricaded walls of Baghdad?s Green Zone to reveal how the Coalition Provisional Authority's bureaucratic arrogance and ineptitude led to disastrous postwar planning. Among the most interesting revelations? The role of Mr. Kate O'Bierne as procurer of young, ideologically virginal 'true believers' for the fascist PNAC schemes in Iraq.

Congratulations to all three recipients of these prestigious prizes.

I'm not familiar with the Ridenhour awards-but they sure know how to pick 'em.
