TRN’s Michael Savage and the listeners of The Savage Nation have been instrumental to the vindication of Lt. Colonel Chessani, in relation to the “Haditha Massacre” in Iraq. For over a year on his nationally syndicated talk show The Savage Nation. Michael Savage said, he "would not rest" until Chessani was exonerated. Savage personally gave $25,000 to Chessani’s defense fund and his listeners helped raise over $200,000 on the air. Earlier this week, a military judge dismissed charges against Chessani, a Marine officer accused of failing to investigate the killings of 24 Iraqis; however yesterday the government, through Lt. Col. S.M. Sullivan, filed a notice that it would appeal the case to the next judicial level.
Michael Savage says, "Radio has freed an innocent man. This demonstrates the power of radio and the dedication of the Savage Nation audience to the truth."
Chessani was originally charged after Time magazine accused the Marines of "massacring" civilians in the Anbar Province firefight, and Rep. John Murtha, D-Pa., later publicly accused the Marine officers of a "cover-up."
