Amnesty in Iraq?

There’s been a lot of talk on the news shows this weekend about a proposal by the Iraqi government to provide amnesty for insurgents who renounce violence and haven’t engaged in terrorist acts. Some say that Iraq is finally asserting its sovereignty and working on a real plan to end the violence and send U.S. troops home. Others say it’s a slap in the face to the U.S. and disgraces the soldiers who gave their lives to liberate the country in the first place.
