A hero scorned

I doubt very much that any of you have heard the name "Mithal al-Alusi". He is Iraqi, Sunni, MODERATE in every sense of the word. He opposed Saddam Hussein. Now, he favours strong ties between Iraq and the United State as well as (GASP!) Israel: So, what's happening to him? His own government wants to have him prosecuted for "humiliating" the country by his visits to Israel: His two sons were murdered. And, how does our government respond? With timidity, to say the least: Here is the exact quote: "The U.S. Embassy declined comment. "It is an issue for the Iraqi parliament, not the U.S. Mission to Iraq," said spokesman Armand Cucciniello."

What a pathetic, weak, shameful response...............
