Another very sad library story

Libraries and books are dear to me. So whenever I read about bad libraries, it makes me wince. When I read about how Iraq's antiquities were totally raped, it was bad. But the Americans did try to make amends, they tried to pump in huge amounts of money to improve the infrastructure which was destroyed by decades of sanctions, war and terrorism. So far so good. One very big initiative was to improve their law libraries in 2003 to 2005.

What happened to it after 3 years? Here, read this and weep. And this was the best of the lot. Long way to go, very long way to go. I would have lost my patience but Haider is obviously made up of braver stuff.
