    Read it again.

    Paragraph 1: Shiites persecuted by Saddam Hussein.
    Paragraph 2: Shiites enjoy religious freedom after Saddam Hussein is overthrown by Americans.

    It is interesting that young Iraqis blame the old religious guard for their problems. Maybe there is a chance for Iraq after all...

    point is, the gray lady is straying from their usual poo-pooing of the iraq war at any cost. but, with a paper this big, there's bound to be a few diamonds in the rough.

    just sharing w/ the class is all.
