UPDATE: Think Progress (via LQ) reminds us of what the Bushes said not even a year-and-a-half-ago:
“The advance of women’s rights and the advance of liberty are ultimately inseparable.” – President Bush, 3/14/04
“President Bush has made the advance of women’s human rights a global policy priority. … We all have an obligation to speak for women who are denied their rights to learn, to vote or to live in freedom.”
– First Lady Laura Bush, 3/8/05
MyDD is making me think.
While I don’t pretend to speak for others, I do wonder how these women (pictured below) would react if they learned that we invaded Iraq only to create a country which goes backward in womens’ rights. So what say you, ladies?
Oh, that’s right. They can’t talk. They were American servicewomen killed in Iraq. (Photo montage from MyDD)
