Conflict of Interest The Stranger Is Seeking a Drained Iraqi Brain
posted by July 19 at 13:13 PMon
Some 2 million Iraqis have fled the consequences of the U.S. invasion of Iraq, creating an Iraqi brain drain that is making it even harder for that country to stabilize. With U.S. politicians now talking about a complete U.S. pullout soon, Congress has been considering whether America has a moral responsibility to welcome more of the professional class that’s now fleeing the country we threw into chaos.
But while the politicians debate, some members of the Iraqi brain drain have already made it to the U.S. Have any of them made it to this city?
The Stranger is seeking such a person for a story. Are you a recent Iraqi refugee living in Seattle? Do you know one?
If so, email me here and put “Iraqi refugee” in the subject line.
