07/26/04 "The Republican" -- NORTHAMPTON - When his turn came to speak at the community dialogue on the Iraq War, Staff Sgt. Jimmy Massey of the United States Marines Corps chewed his gum slowly and slowly scanned the 150 people in the audience.

What he was about to say required deliberation.
"We shot a man with his hands up," he said, "We even shot women and children."

Massey was one of three Iraq War veterans to speak yesterday at a forum sponsored by the Veterans Education Project and the American Friends Service Committee.

3. Well..
The most important thing I noticed was the absence of the speech done by the women senators. The speech was motivating and I am glad I caught most of it. I noticed MSNBC, Fox, and CNN neglected it (PBS doesn't have the best audio, so I was looking)
