US and Canada prevent Iraqi doctor from telling his story

Props to CoolAqua for this story:

"The Seattle PI reports that an Iraqi doctor scheduled to talk at a University Of Washington conference has been denied a Visa by the US. The doctor, Riyadh Lafta, contested official reports of Iraqi civilian deaths as being too low.

When an alternate plan was made for Lafta to participate in the University of Washington conference via video conference from Vancouver Canada, Canada also denied him a Visa.

Censored. I'd like to thank the US and Canadian governments for providing great publicity on this issue by attempting to suppress the truth by denying a Visa to Doctor Lafta. You would have thought that they would have realized that in a free society, when you attempt to suppress free communication, it only spikes interest in the matter. "
