Looking Back to 2005- Saving a Little Iraqi Girl’s Eyesight

Late in 2005, I got an email with a link to an Orlando Sentinel article reprinted on Truthout.org with the headline “Orlando holds hope for young war victim,” about a beautiful 2 year old girl name Alaa.  In May, 2005, her two brothers and three of her cousins were killed and she and her mother were injured when an American tank shell hit their home in western Iraq.  Tiny bits of shrapnel lodged in her eyes, and, in December 2005, she was in Orlando with her father in hopes of saving one of her eyes.  A number of people, notably Alan Pogue and Cole Miller of www.nomorevictims.org and Ashley Severance, then a law student in Orlando, brought Alaa and her father to the U.S. and arranged lodging and medical care.

For the Thanksgiving 2013 edition of Tell Somebody,  I re-aired my 2005 conversations with Alan Pogue and Ashley Severance, and gave a little bit of an update.

Jay Coghlan of NukeWatch.org - Will Feds Wiggle Out of Billion Dollar Cleanup of Nuclear Weapons Site?

Nuclear Watch New Mexico Executive Director Jay Coghlan, in Kansas City for a couple of speaking engagements about the new and old nuclear weapons parts production plants in Kansas City, stopped by to talk to Tell Somebody right after a three hour meeting with representatives of the Missouri Department of Natural Resources and right before his second speaking engagement.  Coghlan has some doubts as to whether the feds will live up to their responsibility to clean up the highly contaminated Bannister Federal Complex, and some suggestions as to how Kansas Citians can pressure them to do the right thing.
