The Trial of the “Kings Bay Plowshares 7” in Brunswick, GA, Oct. 21-24, Was Less a Search for Truth Than a Perpetuation of a Deadly Cover-Up by Mary T. Yelenick, Pax Christi USA, Nov. 27, 2019


The contortions of the American legal system – functioning to conceal not only the horrific dangers posed by nuclear weapons, but the very fact of their placement in our communities  – were on full display at the recent Kings Bay Plowshares jury trial, which took place in federal court in Brunswick, Georgia from October 21-24, 2019.   The spectacle of government witnesses robotically intoning, under oath, that they could “neither confirm nor deny” the existence of nuclear weapons on the Trident submarines homeported at the Kings Bay naval base in Georgia gave lie to the ostensible search for “truth” frequently proffered as the basis of our legal system.
