Oh for Christ's sake US Government, bring his whole family over here. As it mentions in the article if he goes back to Iraq he and his whole family are going to be wiped out.

Good on the Major. Ramadi is a major suckfest, I spent almost 2 years there. I always thought about the kids playing when I heard explosions.

Agreed. The mom is a widow and she can't get a job because she is a woman. So, she has to beg. Not to mention there are terrorist attacks all the time. I am sure there are a ton of people in Michigan who would take the family under their wing and set them up for a new life. I feel sorry for the poor kid. To come to America for a short time, live in your own room, not have to worry about how you are going to eat, or if your house is going to be bombed or seeing men bully around your mother because she is a woman. Only to go back to all of that.

It's hardly free this time. He and his family have already paid in a coin many of us would not be willing give for his father's help to the US and for being part of the plan to stabilize the country and assume full time local control.

Can someone explain to me why the mother is not allowed to work? No husband and 5 kids and she has to beg to get money to feed them? Way to go Religion Of Peace and Compassion.

While stories like this are heartwarming and make us feel good about ourselves, there are how many other children who could use a similar opportunity? Circumstances tugged at one particular heartstring, how many others were immune?
The corollary is where can we draw the line? Should we import tens of thousands of children and heal them? And what about their families?
It's a no-win situation. Except for Mohammad. For now.

Manuel was a young boy living in the Dominican Republic when he caught the eye of a major personality from American radio. "Will you pay me?" the boy said to Rush Limbaugh. Five minutes later, Limbaugh gave Manuel a viagra, a passionate interlude, and a nasty rash.

allestelle: If they are trying to protect his identity, why did they reveal his secret last name?

Um, it's his name he's using in the states and for any press. I assume he'll be using his real name back in Iraq. Folks who want to retaliate against the family will have to work a little bit harder to locate them in Iraq. Instead of, you know, using the Iraqi Yellow Pages.

From TFA:

He also has had eight cavities filled and one tooth capped by a Jackson dentist. A Lansing optometrist is getting him glasses.

Thanks press for telling the local terrorists exactly what to look for. How many boys with glasses, eight filllings and a capped tooth are there really going to be in that area? That right there is reason enough to apply for asylum.

it would have been cheaper to have paid every man woman and child in Iraq $2000 a year to sit home and do nothing since the start of the war. thats more than the per capita income anyway.
