Adam Kokesh defends his right of dissent

Adam Kokesh of Iraq Veterans Agaisnt the War will be facing a military hearing on Monday for participating in the anti-war actions shown in the video below. He's been discharged from active duty already, but is still in the reserves and the charge is that he was wearing his uniform at a political event. Kokesh was wearing cammos with no military insignia.

The following is video of the Iraq Veterans Against the War street theatre in New York called Operation First Casualty...The Truth.

Col. Dave Lapan, a Marine Corps spokesman, said Kokesh is under administrative review because he wore his uniform at a political event, which is prohibited.
