Juan Cole on Iraq War myths

The one that caught my attention:
"Myth: The US overthrow of the Baath regime and military occupation of Iraq has helped liberate Iraqi women. Fact: Iraqi women have suffered significant reversals of status, ability to circulate freely, and economic situation under the Bush administration."

Streak- good find. For simplicity I'm including the link to the article quoted in this particular myth. The entire interview is very informative.-BB
