Bush's anti-woman foreign policy

The Boston Globe reports in its Editorial section today that the Bush administration has been touting US occupations of Afghanistan and Iraq as evidence of his pro-woman foreign policy.


Last week's issue of the New Yorker (I don't have a citation for this in front of me but I'll add it in later) reported on a casualty of the Iraq conflict, who related having seen Iraqi men throw a suspected adulteress off a bridge. American soldiers who witnessed the event were under orders not to interfere. Is this how we're liberating Iraqi women? Is this Bush's supposed pro-woman foreign policy? Let Iraqi men kill Iraqi women? I wish someone would call Bush on this.
