For the Iraqi orphans
March 25, 2005 8:41 AM   Subscribe

A foundation has been established to help the Iraqi orphans that survived the January shooting (earlier Mefi thread) by American forces. There's also more recent information about the shooting in this Newsweek article. Check out this BoingBoing post to read an e-mail from the photographer that witnessed the shooting and is now establishing this foundation.

First, I'd heart of this. Then again, I was in Vegas at the time. So it goes.

Gee, next time you want to indirectly rant against the Bush Administration, try to be slighly less transparent about it, OK?

Like these orphans deserve their own special charity?

PP - this is just an update to something we discussed in January. Where do you see an anti-Bush agenda?

exhilaration: You mentioned the war. I think that was the problem. Don't mention the war.

Goddamned, money-grubbing orphans! Where will it end? I suppose children with various incurable illnesses will expect their own charities too, now. And then adults! Adults with diseases! Greedy fuckers.
