Why does George Bush hate freedom?
The American government is conspiring with the authoritarian rulers of Egypt to suppress the latest Arab Human Development Report (AHDR). The document, assembled with great effort and courage by Arab scholars and other experts, apparently criticizes the U.S. occupation of Iraq, the continued Israeli domination of Palestinian lands, and the dictatorial practices of the Egyptian government. I think you can probably imagine the confluence of nefarious interests here without me having to spell it out for you. You may recall that the second AHDR was misused by fighting conservative keyboarders and liberal hawks like Tom Friedman to justify the invasion of Iraq. But now that the new report contains some things that the U.S. doesn't like, our wise rulers have decided to simply throw it in the trash. Onward, freedom!
