YOU’VE PROBABLY READ THIS ALREADY (I found it via InstaPundit), but this post by Tim Blair on the human shields who are fleeing Iraq, because they were told “deploy to the ‘strategic sites’ hand-picked by the government or leave immediately”!
As Blair writes, “Betrayed by the Iraqi government itself! Who could ever have predicted such a thing?”
Blair also notes the shields’ leader, Ken Nichols O’Keefe, took his mother(!) with him to Iraq.
Here’s more on the human shields.
