Collateral Damage - Neda Soltani Version

What an amazing and sad story.
All she wants, she says, is to lead a normal life, but she is not optimistic. "I've lost everything," she told the German broadcaster 3sat in an interview in March. "I don't know what I'm doing here, and I don't know how I'll go on. I have little hope."
If Neda has tired of her perpetual pursuit to set the record straight, of her repeated and unheeded denials that she was the martyr everyone was looking for, it's only fair. And indeed, it seems that Neda spoke too soon: It turns out she is a sort of martyr after all.
Maybe some of thse countries should try to expand the supply of possible names!
