She did help? Who? How did she help....I have serious doubts that she helped anyone but herself and her puppet masters. Reminds me of that group of creepy 9/11 Widows. Who did they help, if not only themselves...got any answers Orange?
"Her actions right or wrong did help many needy people. I have respect for her since she was trying to help people in need unlike many who do nothing. She took the risk and paid the ultimate price. God bless her."
You've been misled by media (or should I say "Medea") PR.
She was a human shield that was there to protect Saddam in 2003. Prior to that she verbally accosted President Bush while he was making a speech. She has a 10-year track record of left-wing agitation. She stayed in Iraq after saddam was deposed to highlight the victims of war as a way to demonize the U.S. liberation of Iraq and demoralize our war effort.
She agitated for U.S. taxpayer money, money that ws better spent through CPA, DoD or real organizations, not a leftist front group.
Well, without being able to read the comment by Little Bill, I don't know what he said. But, without being disrespectful to the person as a human being, we can discuss without rancor whether or not what she was doing over there was helpful or harmful to the Iraqis or to what our government was doing.
It is ironic that she would die in the fashion that she did, but it is my opinion that people who espouse the views that this unfortunate woman held harm the allied effort in Iraq.
As a result, actions and views such as hers ultimately hinder the ability of the Iraqis to install the social structure needed to protect their citizens, and also make these types of attacks (such as the one that killed her) be viewed by the world as the crimes they are, instead of the "insurgency" or "resistance" as they are viewed by many.
I have sympathy for her and her family, but I do feel that she was a "useful idiot" (not in the perjorative sense conveyed by the simple use of the word 'idiot', but in the sense intended by communists the world over since Marx and Lenin) That is, to describe well intentioned people who can be used as tools or weapons against anyone who opposes the communist/terrorist cause.
