They've just vanished.
It's like LOOPER but with no sign of Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
The years 2009 through 2016 have been disappeared from the timeline.
The Faith Popcorn of the 21st century, Lauren Sandler reports on Iraq. Or writes about it. Or pretends to write about it. She doesn't really understand what she's writing about -- not even the Amnesty International report.
But what's most interesting about her typing for HUFFINGTON POST on Iraq -- or maybe near Iraq -- is the revelation that the years 2009 through 2016 have vanished.
2009 is gone.
2010 is gone.
2011 and 2012!
So is 2013.
2014 and 2015 have gone into a black hole as well.
Even 2016 is missing.
How did that happen?
She tells us that Bully Boy Bush made life bad for Iraqi women. And she knows that Trump will make it even worse.
Where are the years 2009 through 2016?
Why are they not included?
What could be the reason for their omission?
Oh, right, Barack was president.
I'm sick of all the bulls**t from all the liars.
Barack did great damage to Iraq, admit it or just admit you're a whore.
In 2010, did Nouri win re-election in the March elections?
No, he did not.
Iraqiya won. And for eight months, Nouri al-Maliki refused to step down and make way for Ayad Allawi. Instead of backing the people's choice, the US government stood with thug Nouri. They rewarded him by negotiating a contract -- The Erbil Agreement -- that overturned the will of the Iraqi people.
The message this sent about voting?
Many people have long noted that -- we've certainly noted it here.
But we're the only American site that's ever bothered to note how this effected Iraqi women.
Lauren can't because she's a whore who is using Iraqi women as a prop to play partisan politics.
Iraqiya wasn't just inclusive in terms of sects and religions, it was also inclusive in term of gender.
Maysoon Al-Damlouji was the most high profile woman in 2010. In fact, her profile in 2010 is still the highest public profile any Iraqi woman has had since 2003. Not even Hero Talabani, deceiving the country with her insistence that her husband Jalal Talabani could speak and move (following his stroke that sidelined him for over a year and a half), came close.
Maysoon was the spokesperson for Iraqiya and she was popular and a vote getter. She was a signal of a national Iraq that everyone could be part of.
The 2010 election results were overturned by Barack.
If Lauren were truly concerned about Iraqi women, she might have touched on that.
Or she might have noted that once Nouri was installed by Barack for that second term, ISIS rose and that was because of Nouri's persecution of Sunnis. This persecution included Sunni girls and women being beaten and raped in jails and prisons.
She might also address Hillary Clinton's refusal to include Iraqi women in her speech on women around the globe -- even though one of her closest friends begged her to do so. She covered pretty much every country in that speech -- except Iraq.
That's just some of what Iraqi women faced when Barack was president.
There's the promise they made -- and the money they took -- to improve women's lives. Money that was taken from We The People -- handed over by the Congress -- but never made it to Iraq to help women. Brooke Darby was the one delivering the promises to Congress but Hillary was her boss.
How about when Barack got called to the carpet by two US senators -- both women -- over his nomination of Brett McGurk for US Ambassador to Iraq. The women rightly pointed out -- as we had here for weeks -- that Iraqi women couldn't go to the US Embassy if Brett were ambassador. He'd been in Baghdad earlier. A married man. A married man who cheated on his wife in Baghdad. That he'd married his mistress didn't change his actions -- and his actions were news to Iraqis. Had he been made ambassador, any woman going into the US embassy would be accused of infidelity.
There are so many ways that Barack hurt women. Including refusing to ever nominated a woman to be the ambassador to Iraq.
But Lauren can't find any of those incidents because she's disappeared eight years to make a partisan attack.
