Free to flee, just don't come here

By Libby

I had a crazy day yesterday. Although it ended up better than it started I didn't get around to posting much or even reading the news. But quote of the day went to Shamanic. Read her whole post, on the refugee crisis in Iraq and the US failure to accept any of the refugees we created with our "liberation."
It is a shameful and tragic outcome that the same elements of the American body politic who refuse to set timetables because we can't "abandon" the Iraqis are doing nothing at all to expedite the removal of those in the country who put their lives on the line for us every day.

It is truly shameful. Of all the ways Bush is claiming to be helping the Iraqis, the one most useful method, granting asylum, isn't even addressed while the neighboring countries in the Middle East carry a burden we more easily absorb.
