9-16-11: From Iraq and Back
Our mandate here at Maryland Morning to focus on the Free State doesn’t always mean staying inside its borders. Today we’re talking to Dr. Najmaldin Karim. He’s a neurosurgeon from Silver Spring, whose son is a senior studying accounting at the University of Maryland. Dr. Karim, who has lived more than half his life in the U.S., is a U.S. citizen. But last year he returned to his birthplace – Kirkuk, Iraq. Dr. Karim was elected to a seat in Parliament, and this spring was appointed governor of the province of Kirkuk.
