I am sorry that I overlooked this.

Although I post Karpinski's speeches when it seems applicable-- 
perhaps too much for some--I was unaware that this is an ongoing  
series inspired by the hearings that were held at the end of 2005.

The whole schedule is here. As usual, those interested should check  
before hand. I have omitted the ones that have already taken place.  
For information on these meetings, you can probably find out what  
happened by locating the applicable schools' newspapers.

Personally, I don't think that this was marketed well. Everyone  
should have known about this Operation Rolling Teach-In on Bush's War  
Crimes. The URL below lists all of them. I have deleted those that  
have already taken place
