Of Course, This Never Gets Reported
Good things are happening in Iraq. US Labor Secretary Elaine Chao has given $5 million of her department's budget "to help rebuild the Iraqi Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs." She recently visited the Fatima Al-Zahra Center for Women's Rights and Democracy in Hilla, Iraq, "one of 18 centers that the U.S. government is opening in Iraq to support women's political rights and provide educational and income-generating opportunities for women." This "center also houses a kitchen that supports a catering business, a sewing room where women make garments to sell and an auditorium where classes are held and that is rented out." Now, I understand that 18 buildings in Iraq are not going to change the country, but this is the kind of precious, human interest, rights-of-the-downtrodden story that the liberal media serves up on a regular basis. Any reason they're not telling this one and other stories like it from Iraq? Forget it, I know the answer.
