Another Waste of Trees by the New York Times
Read the intro to this amazing, one of a kind, on the cutting edge NYT story.
Cheated Of Future, Iraqi Graduates Want To Flee
By Damien Cave
BAGHDAD, June 4 — They started college just before or after the American invasion with dreams of new friends and parties, brilliant teachers and advanced degrees that would lead to stellar jobs, marriage and children. Success seemed well within their grasp.
Does any of that matter to this reporter? Nope, of course not. These kids missed out on parties and government jobs overseeing meaningless offices full of loyal Bath Party members doing nothing but living off the backs of the suffering.
Just another example of how the evil Americans have cheated the peaceful Iraqi elite out of job and security and the upper class.

Good grief. This "reporter," to use the term very loosely, is insane. He obviously has done no research whatsoever with regard to what life was like in Saddam Hussein's Iraq.
He certainly isn't afraid to let the FACTS get in the way of a chance to bash the United States and the war, is he?
