An Iraqi Spokeswoman for Iraqi Christians Finally Gets a Visa to Enter the U.S.

Nina Shea reports that Sister Diana Momeka has now been granted a visa to enter the United States. A leading spokeswoman for persecuted Iraqi Christians, Sister Diana is expected to testify before a House Foreign Affairs subcommittee. Other details of her itinerary have not yet been set.
