Dr. Wasfi: "For Iraqis, it's 9/11 every day."
by Dahlia Wasfi, MD
(San Francisco) "The shortages and conditions in Iraq include: lack of electricity, potable [drinkable] water, tanks rolling through the streets night and day, gunfire and explosions. Iraqi health care is in shambles and 200 bodies turn up daily in the Baghdad morgue," Dr Wasfi testified to a Congressional Forum April 27, 2006. The testimony is about 6 minutes. http://tinyurl.com/yx5rsb

She continued "For Iraqis, it's 9/11 every day. This is life in Iraq under the US occupation."

In the following video Dr. Dahlia Wasfi is introduced and speaks to a progressive group on conditions in Iraq. The video runs about 16 minutes.

Dr. Wasfi concluded her prepared remarks with this question: "
Since 1958, Iraqis have hoped that each regime change might bring a better life. Have they hit rock bottom now?"

Dr. Dahlia Wasfi is a nationally known speaker and activist. Born in the United States to an American Jewish mother and an Iraqi Muslim father, she lived in Iraq as a child, returning to the U.S. at age 5. She graduated from Swarthmore College with a B.A. in Biology in 1993 and earned her medical degree from the University of Pennsylvania in 1997. Dr. Wasfi has made two trips to Iraq since the 2003 "Shock and Awe" invasion to visit her extended family. She returned from a three month stay in Basrah in March 2006. On April 27, 2006, she testified at a Congressional Forum to provide her eyewitness account of life in Iraq. Based on her experiences, Dr. Wasfi is speaking out in support of immediate, unconditional withdrawal of American forces from Iraq and the need to end the occupation "from the Nile to the Euphrates."
