punishing, not rewarding

Saman Kareem Ahmad spent four years translating for the US Army in Iraq. He was able to come to the US, and applied for a green card. And he was turned down because he'd belonged to a Kurdish organization that tried to overthrow a government.

Specifically, an organization that tried to overthrow SADDAM HUSSEIN'S GOVERNMENT. Hell, on that criteria we could exclude the entire US Armed Forces from returning to America!

He's not alone in this absurd predicament. And many other Iraqis have risked life and limb working for us, but get nothing but a promise to consider their cases.

Such a reward for very dangerous service. Classy.
