Voice from the Commonwealth
Commentary, World Views and Occasional Rants from a small 'l' libertarian in Massachussetts

"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

So James Zogby is going around the country putting on a dog-and-pony show where American students talk to Iraqi 'students' via sattelite. Sorry if I sound sceptical but, let's be honest. Who really thinks anyone allowed to speak from Iraq isn't prescreened and afraid to tell the truth? We know that people who live under oppressive regimes will never feel free to speak their minds without fear of retribution. This little farce lowers Zogby a great deal in my estimation. This is a cynical display and he must know it.
