69. I was wondering when you find that.

Have you seen the hateful twitter account of that anchor, a known shill and moron who is universally reviled, btw. For those who do not know who he is, his name is David Aaronovitch Anyone who attacks Craig Murray deserves the trashing he received today and is a right wing tool.

The woman was wrong, the names of those women are well known all over the world, they themselves made their names known. A transparent ploy by the moron anchor, Aaronovitch to try to distract from what a highly respected Human Rights hero had to say.

I love the reaction that show got though. He was being trashed all over the internet. How on earth does someone like that get a show on TV. It really demonstrates the decline of the Western media.

Women do not need to be protected by these phoney, patriarchal types, who could care less about them anyhow. I despise men and women who think we are shrinking violets who cannot stand up as equals to men. Either the name of the accused is not revealed as well as the accusers, which is what I support, or both should be revealed as you have an absolute right to face your accusers.

Hiding the names of women claiming to have been raped makes the assumption that THEY have something wrong. Makes it seem they should be ashamed and protected. We don't hide the IDs of murder victims do we?

This pretense of concern for women makes me sick, especially when women are used as political footballs.

I sincerely wish, as I said before, that the raped women of Iraq were given even one tiny % of this fake concern.

I believe I asked you if you have ever done anything, as I have, to try to get justice for the women of Iraq who were raped and tortured by this government.

I also asked if you supported the US Government's policy of 'moving on' from those crimes, and of protecting the criminals who are responsible. I would really like to know if you and Aaronovich spent any time at all going after the torturers and rapists of Iraqi and Afghan women. But something tells me I will not get an answer.
