This is great news:
An Iraqi lawyer who helped the U.S. military find and rescue Army Pfc. Jessica Lynch, who was held prisoner in a hospital in Iraq, has been granted asylum in the United States, officials said on Tuesday.
They said the lawyer, his wife and their daughter were granted asylum in Arlington, Virginia on Monday. Further details were expected to be announced by Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge during a speech later on Tuesday.
I know some may think that Muhammed is nothing more than an Iraqi Uncle Tom and a craven opportunist, but hey- how many people, given the opportunity, do the right thing? That counts for something in my book. I want more people like Muhammed in the United States.
