Part of Our Free Iraq

By Cassandra D

You don't have to tell me. I know I'm the Debbie Downer ("wah-wah...") on this blog, but, even after years of one bad story after another, sometimes the news is so disheartening I have to share my misery. I don't just love the company, I need it. So here goes:

Young orphaned girls are being kidnapped in Iraq and sold as sex slaves, and even if they escape they are tossed in jail. So says Time.

Not only are we not doing anything about this, but we have little moral standing on this issue. Our country has been subcontracting, via Halliburton, to companies that have been using human trafficking to supply workers in Iraq.

Yea! Great! Iraq is free! Woo hoo!
