We no longer have any cause to be concerned about the possible mistreatment of American POWs by the Iraqis. Al Sharpton met with Mohammed Aldouri, Iraqâ€™s Ambassador to the United Nations, to stress the importance of Iraqâ€™s compliance with international law. Sharpton told reporters that Aldouri assured him that “our appeal would be communicated and that he would make clear we do not want to see POWs’ lives risked.”
It seems the Ambassador has had a busy week. On Wednesday he was visited by Jesse Jackson.
And to think I had been worried that Iraq would not comply with international law. What would we ever do without these men?
