Betrayed

George Packer has written another excellent if depressing article in the March 26, 2007 edition of The New Yorker.  Betrayed follows a group of Iraqi interpreters who risk their lives every day to work with the Coalition Provisional Authority in Baghdad and in return are treated with suspicion and hostility by their American counterparts, and by their fellow Iraqis. 

It seems to be yet another example of how poorly the US has handled post-Saddam Iraq.

Packer’s earlier article, Knowing the Enemy, is also worth reading.  My review is here.
