Will our Nobel Prize winner stand by our friends?

 

Barack Obama in his Friday comments on winning the Nobel Peace Prize, talked about ending the war in Iraq—but not achieving victory there. But in his hurry to assert his responsibilities as “commander-in-chief of a country that’s responsible for ending a war”—the “V” word seems to be banned in this White House and he did not utter the word “Iraq” in these remarks—he may be consigning some unfortunate individuals to a horrible fate. If you doubt that, read this moving article from the Boston Globe by Gary Morsch, a physician who served as an Army rerservist in Iraq, in the town of Ashraf, inhabited by Iranian dissidents who provided the United States with important information of Iran’s nuclear programs. Dr. Morsch reports that Iraqi authorities are now deporting these people to Iran, where they face a hideous fate, and that U.S. personnel have just been looking on. Let’s hope that our government, headed now by a Nobel Prize winner for the first time since 1920-21, can do something for them.
