Grade A Certified Idiots
Kristina Olsen a nurse, whose sister was killed in the September 11 attacks, sings at the al-Amariya shelter in Baghdad, Iraq, on Wednesday, Jan. 8, 2003. Kristina is one of four members of the Peaceful Tomorrows group who have lost relatives in the violence of September 11, met to grieve with Iraqis whose relatives were killed 10-years ago when allied warplanes struck a bomb shelter. The four members said they want to be with Iraqi families who have also suffered such loss because of war and sanctions. (AP Photo/Hussein Malla)
I thought Sean Penn had plumbed the depths of dull-eyed useful idiocy. But compared with Peaceful Tomorrows, an anti-war group founded by families of September 11 victims, he was only snorkeling.
“My heart has been ripped open and healing has taken place within me today,” she said. “I hope that some sort of healing is taking place for some other people, the Iraqi people who have shared their stories with us and who have received our love and compassion.”
Meanwhile in a dark prison in Tikrit, the Mukhabbarat (Saddam?s secret police) are quite literally ripping open someone?s heart, slowly, with great relish at the suffering, in front of family members.
Fitting accompaniment to her Kumbaya sing-along in Iraq might be the screams of hundreds of thousands of torture victims, and the choking of dying Kurds as the chemical cloud descends. Audience participation.
Kristina Olsen and her ilk are beyond despicable. This is schtoopid naïveté taken to the point of sheer narcissistic evil.
