Totten In Iraq

Michael Totten reports from Suleimaniya, a city in Iraqi Kurdistan.
The Iraqi Kurds I met who have been to Iran wanted me to know – and they want you to know, as well – that the distance between the Iranian people and their hideous regime is galactic. I heard the same refrain over and over again: “Persians are just like us.” In other words, they are liberal, secular, pro-Western, and fed up with tyrants. “Iranians love America,” the Kurds told me. “They have nothing to do with Ahmadinejad.”
Totten photoblogs his visit to one of Saddam's torture chambers that is now a genocide museum.
