A Bend in the River

September 6, 2007

A few months ago, Iraqi blogger Riverbend announced that she and her family had decided to leave Iraq. Life in the new hell created for Iraqis by our lying shitbag of a president — as opposed to the old hell previous presidents helped perpetuate by giving aid and weapons to Saddam — was simply too much for them, and they were trying to choose between Syria and Jordan as the best place of exile.

Now Riverbend has returned to her blog to bring us all up to date. It’s a sad story but it’s good to know she and her family seem to be okay. With Bush and his sycophants ramping up the daily quotient of lies in anticipation of the Petraeus report — gosh, I wonder how that one will turn out — we need all the sources of truth we can get.
