"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." Theodore Roosevelt

Summer of 1959

More progress on the Iraqi Consitution, and guess what, they're still turning back the clock on women's rights:
A chapter of Iraq's draft constitution obtained by The Associated Press gives Islam a major role in Iraqi civil law, raising concerns that women could lose rights in marriage, divorce and inheritance.

Most worrying for women's groups has been the section on civil rights in the draft constitution, which some feel would significantly roll back women's rights under a 1959 civil law enacted by a secular regime.

Shiite Muslim leaders have pushed for a stronger role for Islam in civil law but women's groups argue that could base legal interpretations on stricter religious lines that are less favorable toward women.
No ties to 9-11, no weapons of mass destruction, and now, no Democracy...

What's the reason Mr. President? For what great cause, have we spent thousands of lives and billions of dollars? We the people deserve to know... the truth.
