US folk song: Latin America & Iraq

Listening to our wonderful community radio station, KPFT, last Saturday morning, I was deeply touched by a song about one of our targeted bombs that hit the home of, and killed, the Iraqi artist, Layla Al-Attar. I called the station and got the name of the song, “The Circle,” composed and sung by Kris Kristofferson. Once you get to the link, scroll down to find all the lyrics. It think it is great that he blends Layla Al-Attar with the women whose children “disappeared” during the Argentinian DirtyWar.
