Iraqi Freedom?


Robert Collier at the San Francisco Chronicle reports: Secular Iraqis uneasy with clerics: Muslim factions assert power amid leadership void. Excerpt: [Islamist] Authorities at Al-Sadr Hospital have ordered that women who are not wearing head scarves be rejected at the emergency room unless they are in critical condition. Doctors there and at five other hospitals that have been taken over by the mullahs have protested bitterly and have pleaded with U.S. forces to re-establish secular control. (Via LGF)
