Batiste is featured in a television advertisement, produced by votevets.org, which was designed to persuade Republicans in U.S. Congress to approve a deadline for pulling out of Iraq. Batiste says he has had nothing but support from military colleagues since he has spoken out against the U.S. government's military strategy in Iraq.
