I've blogged about the January 2008 dishonor killings of the beautiful and promising Said sisters, Amina and Sarah, in suburban Dallas (http://www.redroom.com/galleryimage/amina-18-and-sarah-17-said-usa).
Last month the FBI, in a wanted poster of the prime suspect, the girls' father, Yaser Abdel Said (http://www.redroom.com/galleryimage/yaser-abdel-said-50-usa), finally called this crime what it obviously is (http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,437502,00.html). Days later, it backtracked and removed the label "honor killing" from the poster (http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,442723,00.html).
How will these crimes ever be properly addressed if people can't even call them what they are?
