Americans, like myself even have a stereotypical and limited view of Iraqi Women. But after seeing the show my eyes were opened to how they are exactly like any American woman. Sophisticated, intelligent (maybe even more so) resilient, hopeful yet realistic, angry for good reason, lovers, doctors, philanthropists etc. I thought that Emily's starting her show with an insult to the director from a place of arrogance was disgraceful. I was quite angered by listening to her shabby journalism and I was left thinking she was part of the Bush/Cheney regime that downplays the truth and minimizes and or completely sabotages the efforts of these two women (the director and the Actress) to open up our perspectives through this production. It was one of the worst interviews I've ever heard. I'm so upset that what could have been a deep and meaningful interview on a great show was nothing more than Emily asking stupid questions and cutting off those who had something truly meaningful to say. I highly recommend they fire her and send her to Iraq.
