This is a very sad testimony on the state of affairs in our nation. How has it come to this when a successful immigrant with a patriotic past, standing up for his nation (the Kurds) is branded a terrorist.
The New York Times > Magazine > The Politics of Ibrahim Parlak: "How is it that two groups of individuals -- Parlak's small-town friends and the U.S. government -- can look at one man, at one case, at one situation and come to such disparate conclusions? Are his friends so close to him that they can't see what might have been ugliness in his past? Or is the government so intent on proving that it's tough on terrorism that it has lost its moral bearing?"
