We hear from two teenagers from Iraq who are visiting the U.S. for the first time. They’ll share their experiences of growing up under the Saddam Hussein regime and of coming of age in a time of war. We’ll also be joined by a member of The World Leader Program, which aims to provide cross-cultural experiences for teenagers around the world.

  1. Good morning, would you ask the members of The World Leader Program to describe the program the Iraquies students are in and if he can provide some examples?

    Best Regards,

  2. There is much more, than you can cover in an hour, about Iraq and the occupation.

    And realizing these fine young Iraqi’s are young and thus more guarded in their responses, they so far have given a clearer picture of their country than most here even have bothered to learn.

    But as to the quieting of hostilities, it all depends how where and how one looks at it.

    Like paying Iraqi civilians to help in certain area’s fight the gangs under the umbrella of al Qaeda in Iraq. Word is that program will be scaled back.

    The Ceasefires by some of the groups.

    The neighborhoods surrounded by blastwalls, some ethnically cleansed, and not only in Baghdad.

    The millions of refugee’s in an outside of Iraq.

    And much more!
