22 Years In Prison for Feeding the Hungry

Not even joking. Iraqi American Rafil Dhafir has been re sentenced to 22 years partly for sending food and medicine to Iraq during the sanctions period. Sanctions led to the starvation and death of hundreds of thousands of children, but Madeleine Albright thought it was worth it. The real criminals are not the ones that starved hundreds of thousands of children. It's those that dared to send food to them. Some details here.

Seems Michael Moore did pretty much the same thing. A very brave thing to do, though this doctor was even more brave. Not being a celebrity he's at more risk.
