Iraqi Tragedy

Reader comment on item: [Looting:] An Iraqi Tragedy

Submitted by Ethel C. Fenig (United States), Apr 22, 2003 at 18:04

Thank you for stating publicly that the people responsible for destroying Iraqi cultural treasures are...Iraqis. Those who blame Americans and/or the coalition are part of what former UN Ambassador Jeanne Kirkpatrick called "the hate America crowd."

However, according to what I have read, much of the looting at the Iraqi Museum appeared to be inside jobs. Selective looting, cases opened with keys, others opened with glass cutters back up this premise.

I'm curious why you didn't mention this.

Keep up your good work!
