Not your everyday Iraqi voter

If this is true (which I'm certain it is) then I'm just... disgusted. There is no other way to look at it. It is morally repugnant to try and pull this kind of crap. The Iraqi voter, Safia Taleb Al Souhail, featured so prominently in last night's SOTU turns out to be an associate of right-wing types like Newt Gingrich and the new Iraqi ambassador to Egypt. She also knows several PNAC-types through her work for the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies. She's not an everyday citizen, she's a political elitist with ties to the people who pushed for this war. And that's what made that hug even more sickening. That Byron Norwood's mom lost her son and then hugged that woman without knowing who she really was. I feel really bad for her.
