A Reason for Staying

I just listen to the interview of Colonel Sean MacFarland about the death of his friend Sheik Abdul-Sattar Abu Risha. The sheik was a man who, at great personal risk, helped begin the process of taking back his country from the insurgents there. He was a true patriot and a true leader of his people. In all the talk about leaving Iraq we need to be also aware that we have taken upon ourselves a debt of honor to people of Iraq. We need to make our departure without abandoning the very people who are Iraq's best hope of rebuilding their war-torn society.
