Free Khalid Jarrar!

Ore : 3:38 PM

I suppose it was only a matter of time. An Iraqi criticizing the CPA and the Bush White House and mercenaries and such can only go so far before being picked up by the Donald Rumsfeld-controlled mukhabarat (formerly, as some astute readers may recall, Saddam's secret police). It's the sort of thing the Bush admin would love to do to many people in America, and could if it weren't for that whole pesky Constitution thing.

Raed (also in my blogroll to the right there) has the skinny. You can also read something about it at Riverbend's blog, also in my roll to the right. In addition to keeping informed, you can help out: write to the Iraqi Consulate (, write to your senators and representatives, write to your local paper. Just make some noise!

Khalid's is a smart, sensitive, funny and unique voice that desperately needs to be heard by as many people as possible. I have often read his informative (and often enjoyably snarky) missives, and have been remiss in not adding him to my blogroll earlier. I be fixin' to rectify that right now...

UPDATE: Including a pic above and a link to this petition.
