The dismissal of charges against Lt. Col. JEFFREY CHESSANI over his role in the HADITHA Massacre is being hailed by TALK RADIO NETWORK's MICHAEL SAVAGE as a victory for his show and his listeners, who supported CHESSANI throughout his trial. A military judge dismissed the charges this week.
SAVAGE, who said he "would not rest" until CHESSANI, who was accused of failing to investigate the killing of 24 Iraqis at HADITHA, was exonerated, and SAVAGE put his own money where his mouth was with a personal $25,000 donation to CHESSANI's legal defense fund, while listeners donated over $200,000.
"Radio has freed an innocent man," SAVAGE said. "This demonstrates the power of radio and the dedication of the SAVAGE NATION audience to the truth."
