Scott Maffett forwarded this Fox News story:
Five volunteers who went to Iraq to serve as “human shields,” including two Americans, were forced out of the country because they were critical of the government’s choice of sites to protect, the head of the group said Wednesday.
They had chosen locations “essential to the civilian population,” such as food storage warehouses and water and electricity facilities, said Ken O’Keefe, of Haleiwa, Hawaii.
But the Iraqi government wanted the shields in more sensitive locations, he said. He did not elaborate, but some earlier activists have also left Iraq, reportedly after being told they would be posted at potentially strategic targets, such as oil refineries and power plants.
Lenin, it seems, was wrong; the West is full of useless idiots.
