Ayaan Hirsi Ali

As an American, I am not happy that Ayaan Hirsi Ali is leaving the Netherlands for the United States.

One, I think her most important work is in the Netherlands. She is the real 'Iron' lady (as opposed to Rita Verdonk) in Dutch politics. Without her, they are in much worse situation than they were with her.

Two, I am distressed that when she comes to the USA, she's going to work for the American Enterprise Institute. Certainly we can find a better place for her than that.

She is big enough that she should not have to become a tool of the right wing in America.

More on her in
