Just Amazing ... UFPJ and the Iraqi Prime Minister, Nouri Al-Maliki

Get this... United for Peace and Justice (UFPJ) is asking folks in the peace and justice movement in the US to contribute money so that UFPJ can place an advertisement in an Iraqi newspaper asking for a meeting with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri Al-Maliki when he visits New York.

UFPJ is all over themselves as they request this meeting. Lots of sugar in their letter to Al-Maliki. I wonder if anyone asked who he was and what he represents (if it at all matters to UFPJ, that is).... Folks, I must have missed something. But I guess the "largest anti-war coalition" in the US has to explain the facts of life to Al-Maliki, and inform him that the US movement is behind him.... of course, together with the Bush administration....

It does not surprise me that UFPJ is doing this. What is amazing is that they are getting away with it. These guys are something else. Only in the US!!
