I've Been Thinking:

The situation in Iraq is complicated.
It just became more complicated.

The United States is building a democracy in Iraq.
And now this:
Last week a member of Iraq's parliament named Mithal al Alusi was arrested.
Al Alusi was arrested as he returned from a Terrorism Conference in Israel.
It was the 4th year al Alusi had attended the Conference. But this year he was arrested, charged under a law enacted by Saddam Hussein law in 1969.
The law falls under the category of treason, of dealing with Israeli agents.

Important questions arise:
If the United States is building a democracy in Iraq, how can the emerging democracy (Iraq) or its sponsor (the United States) tolerate such blatantly
anti-Israel behavior?
How can the United States condone this skewed sense of justice? An Iraqi member of government, concerned with fighting the war against terror is charged under the very law that was created by a despotic ruler in order to intimidate and murder innocent Iraqi citizens.

This is an issue that must be confronted.
It falls to the candidates to consider this issue now.
It remains for the next president of the United States to rectify the situation.
