    about the condition of women in Saddam Hussein's Iraq.  Which is ironic, seeing as said condition was better than in most countries in the area.

    At least nobody claimed we'd be liberating the gays, although the singular lack of outrage over the way al-Maliki's own armed thugs treat them is, well, striking.

      ...were difficult to impossible to take seriously so I simply ignored or dismissed them but I suppose you are right that there were individuals who made those claims, mostly out of ignorance or, alternatively, in bad faith.
