Civil rights in the US

This just in: on August 3, an Iraqi delegation of civic leaders visited Memphis, Tennessee, on a US State Department-sponsored tour. These folks were, the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee writes, "brought to the US by the State Department to learn more about civil rights in the US." And on August 3, the delegation was forbidden to enter Memphis City Hall because the City Council claimed it would have been forced to "evacuate the building and bring in the bomb squads" had it allowed the delegation to enter.

Perhaps the Memphis city council needs to go to Iraq to be educated about civil rights?
