Ali Ismail Abbas Update

Ali Ismail Abbas, the Iraqi boy who suffered the loss of both arms and much of his family during the glorious liberation of his country, has been fitted with prostheses by a British charity. This is wonderful news, and Ali seems genuinely grateful for the help he has received.

But for those who think that the U.S. will be held in eternal esteem by the Iraqis, Afghans, etc., consider Ali’s recent comments on the war:

I keep asking myself: “Why are they bombing Iraqi people? What have we done to them?”

I hoped that the pilot who hit our house would be burned as I am burned and my family were burned.

Oh well, I’m sure he’s the only Iraqi who feels this way.
