Positive News from Iraq You Won't Hear in the MSM

Military Blogger "Dagger Jag" has posted an awesome story about halfway houses for Iraqi detainess that are being released from US prisons. Apparently the Iraqi's themselves started this program. The former detainees are given new clothes, checked out by an Iraqi doctor, and assigned a host family. They attend classes at the halfway house that include computer & internet but are mostly Iraqi national history,etc. to try and educate them and get them to help work for the future of their country, Iraq. It's a fascinating description of this process with very cool anecdotes of people who have been through the program.

Why isn't anyone reporting this stuff? Ahh, that's a whole other post....
