This is HUGE news! This should be in every newspaper in the country but sadly it isn't. Isn't this what the American people are being told is the reason why we are fighting all these wars?(To spread democracy and yet there is a complete blackout on this story) I am sorry that I posted this in the intros.... I cannot post anyplace else still.



On Friday Bashar al-Assad was slaughtering his own people. Iran continued to hold two Americans in prison. Moammar Gaddafi remained in power while the House of Representatives and President Obama bickered about the War Powers Act. And in Morocco a new “landmark” constitution guaranteeing equality for women, empowering an elected parliament and chief executive, and mandating an independent judiciary was rolled out. It’s a measure of just how much the squeaky wheel dominates the media and the U.S. government that there was virtually no U.S. coverage of the historic event, and that as of Sunday night the State Department had not issued a statement.
