So When Did the Department of Cruelty Become a Cabinet-Level Position?

Over at Common Dreams, we find that two Iraqi women have been denied visas to enter the US. That, by itself, is not too surprising, nor particulary awful.

Even if you add in the fact that they were coming at the request of anti-war groups, it's still not too surprising, giving the dipshits that are in charge of the country these days.

Here's where it veers into unbelievable cruelty: The women's husbands and children were killed by the US military in Iraq. The reason for their visa denial?
[T]he women don’t have enough family in Iraq to prove that they’ll return to the country.
I've got nothing to add.
