US Iraqi’s to vote

Quick blurb from this article caught my attention (via LtShaffer from the forum I post on):

Abdul Al-Haddad, 67, drove six hours from
Raleigh, N.C., with his family to register at the polling station in
New Carrollton, Md. He said he spent 13 years in prison in Iraq after
he was falsely accused of being Iranian.

With his son translating from Arabic,
Al-Haddad said it was his duty to vote. "I feel I am responsible for my
country, to build a free Iraq," he said.

I salute you.

    At least he is less likely to get shot at while he registers and votes. I wonder how they’ve assessed the ex-pat vote…

  2. There are a few. Even going to let those who live in Israel vote. Could get strange.
