Here is Kay Zwerling: After listening to 60 Minutes recently, we Americans should be deeply ashamed for the lack of proper action from our government. Are our leaders losing their marbles, or are they so wrapped up in their own earmarks that nothing else matters? Briefly, over 100,000 Iraqi citizens, who agreed to help our military with valuable information when they were asked, now find themselves marked for death by other Iraqis who deeply resent our military intrusion in their country. Our government should move rapidly to bring those Iraqis and their families who are in danger here to the U.S. But, that’s not happening easily. Our Congress claims that the process to bring these Iraqis to the U.S. must be slow and deliberate because some of them could be terrorists. I say bullpucky. There is something wrong with this picture. As I mentioned many times, President Bush, and the three or four Presidents for the past 30 years clearly have not shown any concern about our open borders, so that now there are thousands of possible terrorists, criminals, and other unsavory people entering our country without any inspection whatsoever. Now they are suddenly careful about those Iraqis who helped our military in Iraq? After five years, and over the billions we taxpayers are spending in Iraq, one becomes weary about our situation. Whatever our good intentions, we are in a very difficult mess, and leaving now may also be disastrous.However, there is another dimension to this dilemma. Amazing and wonderful things are happening in Iraq, things which our occupation made possible. Now there is the possibility of another democracy like Israel in the Middle East. Thanks to our fighting men and women, we are achieving success in Iraq. Did you know ? probably not - how could we, the media won?t share the current good news. But ? Did you know that 47 countries have reestablished their embassies? Did you know that the Iraq government currently employs 1.2 million people?Did you know that 3,464 schools have been renovated, and that 265 schools are under construction? You didn?t know that. And, that in hire education there are 20 universities, 46 colleges, and four research centers currently operating? Of course you didn?t, because our media won?t let us know that.Did you know that the Iraqi Navy and Air Force are operational?And, that the Iraqi police service has over 55,000 fully trained officers? And, that there are five police academies in Iraq that produce over 4,500 new officers every eight weeks?Did you know that there are more than 1,100 building projects going on in Iraq including schools, hospitals, and railroad stations? No, nobody told us. Did you know that 4.3 million Iraqi children were enrolled in primary schools? And, that there are 1,192,000 cell phone subscribers in Iraq? Did you know that Iraq has 75 radio stations, 180 newspapers, and ten television stations? Bet you didn?t know that.Did you know that two candidates in the Iraqi Presidential election had a televised debate? Of course you didn?t know. Why didn?t we know? Because our media won?t tell us. Tragically the left accentuating the negative in Iraq serves two purposes. It’s intended to undermine the world’s perception of the U.S. thus minimizing consequent support, and it’s intended to discourage American citizens. The media is despicable to withhold this honest information. Despite the disloyal American media who want us to fail in Iraq, another democracy may be borne in the Middle East which will benefit all democracies and, indeed, the world. These facts are verifiable on the Department of Defense website. And, kudos to you Paul Trigg of Santa Cruz for sharing this information with us.For KSCO and KOMY, this is Kay Zwerling.
