[casi] Clarification re The big issue for CASI not yet addressed directly

I would like to clarify a statement I made. I wrote

> I wonder if CASI can
> really keep going with this divide. I have to say I doubt it.

I didn't mean that I thought CASI could not keep going at all. I meant
that I did not think that CASI could keep going as it is, without a
resolution of the divide. I think that CASI does have a future and
indeed an important role to play as it did before, with extremely high
quality engagements and advocacy in supporting nonviolent action for
the people of Iraq. CASI has been the most vibrant, useful, engaged
list I have ever been on, and the people of Iraq need this kind of
engagement to continue, and we have a duty to hold our governments to
account for the actions done in our name and with our taxes.

Best wishes
