The U.S. Government ignored our calls for contingency planning to protect U.S.-affiliated Iraqis as we withdrew from the country, claiming that they simply don’t anticipate violence directed at our former interpreters. This is, of course, nonsense, as nearly every withdrawal throughout history has been marked by a campaign of retribution against those who collaborated with the departing power. Nearly 1,000 Iraqi allies have already been slain over the years, and many more are still running for their lives in the post-U.S. Iraq.
In this final period of the cause, the List Project is compiling a list of assassinations, threats and attacks against those who helped America. We will be updating this page regularly to demonstrate that this is not conjecture, but reality. Perhaps then, someone will act.
