In addition to a video of Watada attorney Eric Seitz’s explanation of his view that Lt. Watada cannot be tried again following the mistrial declared by the military judge in Watada's court-martial on Feb. 7, 2007, Zoltan Grossman of The Evergreen State College has posted three brief comments on the mistrial on YouTube:  --  Watada’s mother Carolyn Ho’s brief comment on the broad support Watada has received from the American public;[1]  --  retired U.S. Army Col.

Ehren Watada, held in Tacoma, WA, on Jan. 20-21, 2007; a 64-page Preliminary Report of the panel convened for the hearing was published on Feb. 2 and is available at the preceding link.) ...
