By The Way

Remember that new welcome-mat that the Iraqi's are putting out for ex-Baathists? Check this out:

Essentially, this law forces a Baath Party member who wants a job in the government to appear before a judiciary board in public view and announce that they are an ex-Baathist, in a time where Shiite militias and death squads still operate. This is a death sentence that appears to be more about rooting out Baath Party members than anything else.
Now tell me. If you were a Baathists, part of the party that committed genocide against Shiites, would you stand up and declare yourself in front of the entire nation?
