Will Diane Rehm ignore Iraq for a 3rd week in a row?
Kwame Holman explained on tonight's NewsHour, "Some 3,000 Iraqis demonstrated in Baghdad today, demanding an end to corruption in the courts and abuse of prisoners. They were led by lawyers in one of the biggest protests in Iraq since the uprisings in Egypt and Tunisia. Smaller rallies also were held in Basra and Mosul."
It's amazing how little attention Iraq has received.
Diane Rehm will probably blow it off tomorrow. If so, it will be the third Friday in a row where there was no mention of Iraq in the "international hour" which has fastly become the Egypt hour.
Again, rough week at work, this is all I can manage tonight. Sorry.
