Left to rot in the Desert

Denmark beats new records in xenophobic policies. It has now come out in the press that one of the Danish interpreters in Iraq was abducted by insurgents, tortured and killed.
And: Did this happen recently?
No, it happened more than half a year ago. The Danish military and government have not wanted to inform the public of this. Instead there has been an intellectual debate about what to do with these people, the interpreters, who have so loyally cooperated with Danish forces in the Danish war effort.
Helping Denmark in this impossible war that has been based on lies and deceit from the beginning, they're left to rot in the desert.
Their lives were not endangered, it was said. Patience, patience! We have to await a report from a committee about what to do with the interpreters. And all because the Danish government is under the spell of Ms. Pia Kjaersgaard and her xenophobics in the Danish People's Party who won't let anybody alien to the precious Danish culture come into Denmark, for fear of them getting mingled with ethnically pure Danes.
Anders Fogh Rasmussen has been fighting for freedom and democracy with his pal George W. Bush. There does not seem to be any freedom and democracy for democracy's little helpers.
