Congressman Leonard Boswell says the latest wave of attacks in Iraq — and the exit of Red Cross and U-N workers in Baghdad — is a troublesome development. Boswell, a democrat from Des Moines, says he served a couple of tours of duty in Vietnam in the same circumstance — when there’s no “front-line” or safe zone for anyone. Boswell says we shouldn’t be surprised since soldiers and civilians are being killed and injured every day. But he says it’s important to get the aid workers back in place to help get services restored to the people of Iraq. And Boswell says the situation illustrates the need for appealing for international help inside Iraq. Boswell says we need more allies helping us because things just aren’t working right now.
