Mixed Kurdish Messages about the U.S.


The Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) in Iraq has unveiled a statue of a fallen American soldier as thanks for the American contribution.

The KRG office in Washington, however, led by Qubad Talabany (Jalal Talabani’s son) has circulated an e-mail condemning the 900 lies that led to war in Iraq. Qubad has yet to issue a retraction or an apology or explain why he saw fit to issue such a statement.

The liberation of Iraq and Iraqi Kurdistan has very much been worth the sacrifice which so many have made; it would be better if the KRG’s representative in Washington did not mock it.
