    I hesitate to make this comment, because it might be taken the wrong way.  But...

    We have to allow more Iraqis into the US, because it is morally and ethically required.  We created this vast and severe humanitarian crisis, and we must due something concrete to help resolve it.

    But if I were al Qaeda in Iraq, I'd be salivating at the prospect of the US admitting large numbers of Iraqi refugees.

    It's one more example of how Bush has undermined the national security of the United States.

      If they want to get in, going through the refugee program is probably the toughest way. I disagree with you there.

      Al Qaida certainly didn't have to do that, last time. Weren't the 9/11 perpetrators on student visas?

      We'd be hurting the innocent and not really protecting ourselves in a meaningful way.
