fter a regular legislative session, one special session and half of a second special session, Kirkland city officials now know what legislators secured for the city and what funding was dropped. For more than 150 days, budget disagreement between the Democrats and Republicans left many cities wondering whether a budget would be passed before the ominous government shutdown feared to take place on July 1. But the Washington Legislature recently passed a budget that left Kirkland with wins, losses and some hope. “The city is thrilled to have gotten some good news out of the Legislature,” said Lorrie McKay, the Intergovernmental Relations

manager for the city of Kirkland. “You get a little, you lose a little and you go back. It was nine months of really hard focused work to try and do right for the residents of Kirkland.” Thanks to Sen. Rodney Tom, D-Medina, who leads the Senate Majority Coalition Caucus, McKay said $1.3 million was allotted from the capital budget to design and construct an enclosed elevator, accessible by those with disabilities, and a covered pedestrian bridge walkway that will be incorporated into the new South Kirkland Transit Oriented Development public parking garage. The access will connect the Cross Kirkland Corridor with the development. “We’re incredibly grateful [ more BUDGET page 7 ]

Kirkland firefighters gear up for water rescues; offer drowning prevention tips BY CARRIE RODRIGUEZ crodriguez@kirklandreporter.com

Justin Becker recalls when rescuers pulled a Kenmore man from Lake Washington last August. The man had enjoyed a day at the O.O. Denny Park beach with his family when it started to get dark. A nearby couple lost their ball out in the lake, and since they noticed the man had been swimming that day, the girlfriend asked the man if he could retrieve the ball. “So he swam out and through exhaustion he got himself into trouble,” said Becker, a Kirkland Fire lieutenant who has run the

department’s technicianslevel training program since 2009. The department has trained swimmers who respond to about 25 water rescues in Kirkland per year on average. “So then his wife went out to try to help him as well and the girlfriend went out and it ended up being we had three victims in the water. Unfortunately, the husband was underwater before we got there.” Kirkland Fire water rescuers and other responding agencies saved the panic-stricken women, who swam more than 100 yards offshore, said Becker. But the man drowned;

divers found him at 52 minutes. Contrary to the many water rescues that have saturated regional media headlines in recent weeks, Becker said that Kirkland Fire responds to water rescues year-round. “It happens a lot and it happens throughout the year,” Becker said of water rescues, noting the department has responded to many water rescues during the winter as well, especially alcohol-related New Year’s incidents. But drownings in Kirkland occur “a lot more than people think,” he said. About 10 people drown

here on average every year along the nearly 13 miles of shoreline.

Drowning prevention While there hasn’t been a drowning fatality in Kirkland this year, the Kirkland Fire Department has responded to seven water rescues so far. The biggest change this year in the city of Kirkland that will help prevent drowning is lifeguards are now on duty at three waterfront parks: Juanita, Waverly and Houghton beach parks. “Last year, the city didn’t

Employees of the Subway store, located at 11613 124th Ave., alerted police of the robbery at around 6:45 p.m. Police say a male suspect entered the store with a handgun, demanded money from the cash drawer and then fled on foot across the street. Once at the AM/PM convenience store, he left in a vehicle with two other males. Shortly after, police found the vehicle and the suspects at the nearby Fred Meyer parking lot and all three were taken into custody. The Kirkland Police

EDITORIAL

New state budget gets the job done for now

T

he Legislature finally reached a deal on a new state budget recently. The good news is that it avoided a state shutdown. The bad news is that it took one regular and two special sessions – 150 days in all – to get what should have been reachable months ago. There’s nothing very dramatic about this budget. Schools will get a $1 billion revenue boost. About half of it will go to take the burden of student transportation, school supplies and building utilities off the backs of local school districts. Such things should be the state’s job anyway. The rest will go to expand all-day kindergarten and reduce class sizes in schools that serve areas with high poverty. Those additions make sense. Lawmakers also were able to use a projected additional $320 million in revenue to help quiet the yelps of other interest groups that saw themselves losing out to schools. The new state budget allocates funds for some Kirkland projects, including the Cross Kirkland Corridor. However, the budget isn’t without a worry or two. On the way to an agreement, lawmakers eliminated a

One reason for the lengthy budget debate was that the Democrats – House, Senate and governor’s office – didn’t end up with the total control they anticipated after last November’s election. Thankfully, two Senate Democrats, Rodney Tom from Medina and Tim Sheldon from Potlatch, joined with Republicans to form a majority coalition. That put a brake on the Legislature from likely pushing through higher taxes.

Outraged at UPS truck blocking disabled parking Last Wednesday, while shopping at Juanita Village, I was outraged to see a UPS truck blocking two disabled parking spaces. I understand that it may be difficult at times for large trucks such as this to find a convenient place to stop in order to make their deliveries, but I draw the line at blocking spots reserved for citizens who need them most. These spaces are reserved for people in wheelchairs, or those for whom walking is difficult and who need the extra space to get into or out of their vehicles. When I see a situation like this I think of my best friend’s father, who is wheelchair-bound after suffering a stroke several years ago. His wife depends on these spots, and blocking their access is not merely an inconvenience or a nuisance, but prohibits her from being able to accomplish her day’s activities. There seems to be an alarming trend of declining consideration and common courtesy for people living with disabilities in favor of convenience. This is not the first time I have seen vehicles illegally stopped or parked in a disabled spot, especially in front of coffee shops where offenders think it’s OK because they will “just take a minute” - and my patience for this behavior has run out.

tax break over certain estate taxes that could have cost the state $160 million in current and future income. The fact that the law is retroactive has some questioning if it will hold up to court scrutiny. Legislators also redirected funding for the Public Works Trust Fund and cut half of the local share in the liquor excise tax. This will cause many municipalities, including Kirkland, to suffer.

Sweeping changes at Big Finn Hill Park Public input? What a sham. I am

a member of the Big Finn Hill Park west neighborhood and a daily user of the park (where I walk with a very friendly dog). I was totally unaware of any of the sweeping changes that are currently proposed for the park. There was a public meeting held on June 20 at Finn Hill Middle School, where the big changes were unveiled for the first time. This was not a forum for public comment or input, however, as those of us asking questions and voicing concerns were often told to hold our tongues. We were directed to fill out a comment form and be sure to mail it in within 10 days of the meeting, when it would be subjected to “final review” (by whom?) on July 8. As of July 15, the trail committee will make its final recommendations (note: this is the same day that Kirkland Parks Department officials told us they would begin work in the park with a bobcat skid steer). Then Parks Department staff will review the trail committee’s final recommendations on July 22 and these recommendations are scheduled to be approved on July 26. At what point, and where, will the public, neighbors, citizens and park users be allowed to voice our concerns and opinions? Please tell me because I don’t know. There has been no signage or announcement of meetings and the public comment forms were posted at the kiosk with just five days for the public to fill out and send them in. It feels to me like this is just another issue of someone trying to seize these beautiful, undeveloped woods and turn them into

something for a minority interest (remember the new firehouse fiasco of 2011)? These changes are slated to turn this wild habitat into a bikers’ paradise, complete with jumps, ramps, boardwalks and new clearings and trails. There will even be baffle gates installed to make sure that bikers aren’t going too fast (so what’s the point of the other stuff, then)? The plan also calls for an area cut through the middle of the park large enough to bring in an “emergency vehicle.” Why, oh why, do outside interests keep coming in and trying to fix something that isn’t broken? What, I ask you, is so very wrong with these woods as they are? To me, they are perfect. Please, leave Big Finn Hill Park west alone!

Elizabeth R. Yori, Kirkland

Business merchants need more parking spaces The letter about parking Nazis in the July 5 Kirkland Reporter brings to mind the letter in the May 10 Reporter about the 11 Kirkland merchants who were going to such great lengths, offering discounts and free gifts, to “encourage consumers to think about downtown Kirkland when they are shopping.” Is there some kind of a disconnect here? I think Mr. Drexler made it quite clear what he thinks about downtown Kirkland and, unfortunately for the merchants, most people would agree with him. Perhaps the downtown Kirkland merchants should forget about the free gifts and drawings and focus

their efforts on dealing with the lack of parking spaces and talking to city leaders about the rapacious and disrespectful treatment of their prospective customers by Kirkland’s “parking enforcement officers.”

Jane Peterson, Kirkland

Dismayed by proposed changes to Big Finn Hill Park As a concerned neighbor of Big Finn Hill Park on the west side of Juanita, I am dismayed to hear of the plans for “improvement.” For well over 30 years, this park has been used by hikers, walkers, bicyclists, dogs, children and adults. The park came of age a long time ago and the neighbors like it just the way it is. The committee that adopted the park was formed by people who don’t live here. We have no problem with sharing “our” park; we have done it for years in a very courteous fashion. The proposed changes would dramatically impact the flora and fauna of the park, some of which are endangered or protected species, as well as affect vernal pools. To the best of my knowledge, no studies have been done to determine the ecological impacts, nor do my neighbors and I feel like our concerns have been acknowledged. The proposed changes would drastically alter the character of a park that is wonderful just the way it is. As my father always said “if it ain’t broken, don’t fix it.”

COMMENTARY

covered, the help needed for the condition goes far beyond the reaches of simply cleaning up a messy home. It is most likely that your hoarding parent has become isolated, less active and distant through the years and skills may be needed to be regained in order to live out a productive life. Resources are available to help you understand the condition you are faced with and the treatment plans that are the most beneficial to everyone involved. 2. Seek professional help as needed. Depending on where you live, experts in hoarding may or may not be available; however, a local therapist is a great place to start the process. While there are a not a lot of therapists who specialize in this behavior, a cognitive behavioral therapist who is familiar with the condition and is willing to learn may prove to be an excellent resource and help for the family. Reach out and get the support you need during this time. 3. Be patient and offer kindness in any situation. As a loved one, it is important to remember that help for your parent is not a “quick fix,” as skills are needed to be

oarding is a condition that affects the person who suffers from it, as well as those who love and care about the individual. As a child, seeing your parent suffer from the condition of hoarding can give rise to a large number of emotions, from anger to sadness, bitterness and despair. In most cases, the condition can seem so overwhelming that the loved one becomes unsure of how to help the situation improve. Without proper information and understanding about the condition of hoarding, increased stress among the family and even a crisis situation may develop. The most challenging aspect in helping a hoarder parent is knowing where to start. Below are several tips that can help you know where to begin and how to handle the situation you are enduring with your parent. Remember, you are not alone. 1. Educate yourself about the condition and behavior. From books by experts in the field to the International OCD Foundation website, excellent resources on hoarding are available for the family to familiarize themselves with. As you may have dis-

taught through therapy and training. Problematic behavior must learn to be managed, and this process takes time and effort. The best thing you can do for your loved one is to offer kindness and patience to every situation. Praise and encouragement should also be offered throughout the entire process. 4. Avoid common traps that may sabotage efforts. Since the treatment process is slow and methodical, many family members and loved ones feel that by helping the hoarder make decisions regarding their possessions they are in fact helping things along quicker. This is not the case and can be detrimental to treatment. Stand back and allow the hoarding parent to take the most active

Kirkland mom helps create Mom Meet Mom start-up BY RAECHEL DAWSON rdawson@kirklandreporter.com

W

ith more than 100 new users each week, Mom Meet Mom, a start-up created by one Kirkland mom and two Boston moms, will gain even more attention when they plan to launch the website nationally on July 25. Currently in the beta stage, the individualized matching website has close to 1,000 mothers looking to expand their maternal social network in a safe and reliable environment. After moms fill out a question survey based on criteria such as personalities, interests, activities, schedules and their children’s personalities and interests, a special algorithm matches users with others in their area. From there, moms can choose to send a friend request, they can chat online and then arrange a place and time to meet up if desired. “Everybody’s kind of messing up and trying their best in the same way and it makes a big difference knowing you’re not alone and if we can prevent moms from feeling isolated and alone like that, then we’ve succeeded,” said Kirkland resident Julia High,

co-founder of Mom Meet Mom. Last year, High and her friend Christa Terry, who lives in Massachusetts, came up with the idea after wishing there was something they could do to take the stress out of meeting other moms. Later, Meg Gerritson from the Boston area joined the team after she had the same idea. High, a cognitive neuroscientist social media strategist turned stay-at-home mom, moved across the country and found meeting new moms “analogous to the awkwardness of dating.” “It was just that feeling of being completely exhausted by going to parks and playgrounds and trying to figure out what woman looks like she might be friendly,” said High, who has a 3-year-old daughter and a newborn. “Her kid is playing with my kid. I hope that means we’ll get along.” Terry, an author, editor and occasional marketer, helped found the start-up so that other working moms, such as herself, could stay abreast in the social scene while still managing busy schedules. Terry also had several months when she couldn’t meet new moms and

go on playdates because her daughter was born six weeks premature and was prone to flu season at the time. And Gerritson, a creative online marketer for start-ups turned stay-at-home mom, spent her time creating a new geolocation application - before she joined the Mom Meet Mom team - that would bring moms and children together for an “allergy-free playdate,” as her son has severe peanut and egg allergies. “All these different experiences - moving across country, having a premie, having a kid with allergies - the list goes on - being a single mom, it’s challenging,” High said. The Mom Meet Mom team launched their beta website in the Boston area on Mother’s Day, six days after High’s second daughter was born. Aside from going national, High said their goals include improving the user experience through feedback and collecting data. Next year they hope to implement an additional tier of service that would be ad free and have more communication tools and an improved matching algorithm for a monthly subscription fee. But High notes the basic level of service will always be free. “The goal is to connect

And everything in between,” High said. “It’s a lot to think about. How do you create a service that serves [both]?”

But the bill, which would have appropriated $1.2 billion from several state accounts, was shot down in the Senate at the end of the second special session. “The ramps are an interesting project because they were funded by the state for the ‘Nickel Project’ and they were a prior commitment by the state,” McKay said. “Then there was the recession and the state put that project on the back burner in terms of bringing in funding.” She said the entire interchange project is $75 million and is listed as unfunded until 2023. “That project is really important to the economic development in the Totem Lake area in getting cars on and off the freeway,” McKay said. “We’ll likely be fighting for that going into next year.” McKay said the transportation package would have also included other Kirkland projects, and if it had passed, the city would have received $9 million. About $1.2 million “was left on the cutting room floor,” as the transportation House Bill 1954 didn’t pass that would have slated those funds for the Park Lane pedestrian corridor enhancements project. That measure would have included a 10 cent statewide gas tax. However, the city is still hopeful that two short-listed projects titled “Safe Routes to School” will see the light of day. Proposed in 2012 and also in 2013 under HB 1954, two sidewalk improvements in Kirkland could get funding from the base transportation budget after the Washington State Department of Transportation goes through the short-list process. If granted, the city would receive $920,000 for a Northeast 104th Street sidewalk that would serve Mark Twain Elementary and $816,000 for the Northeast 132nd Street sidewalk improvement that serves Carl Sandburg Elementary and Finn Hill Middle School. “[The council’s legislative committee] worked from September through June 30 on trying to keep the city’s priorities before the Legislature,” said McKay, who noted transportation investments were of top priority. “We’re ready to regroup and go back in next year.”

beaches from noon to 6 p.m. daily through Sept. 2. “We rarely have water rescues when people are swimming in designated areas,” Becker said. “Most of our rescue situations or body recoveries are where people are swimming outside of the designated areas or outside of the timeframes when there’s a lifeguard … That’s really important to us that the city funded that and got those lifeguards back out there.” With activities such as paddle boarding and kayaking becoming more popular on Lake Washington and increasing Kirkland Fire’s call volume for water rescues, Becker said it’s also important for people to know their equipment. Last year, Kirkland Fire water rescuers tried to rescue a paddle boarder who fell off his board, but couldn’t find the manual inflation on his inflatable life vest, said Becker. The man wasn’t attached to his board and he ended up drowning. “He had a life jacket on, he just didn’t know how to use it and he didn’t know how to swim as well,” he said. Becker noted it is also important for anyone out on the water to understand that the water is cold throughout the year. “So we get a lot of calls for overturned boats or where people fall off their paddle board in that cold water and they can’t get back up on their platform,” said Becker. “They get cramped and hypothermic really quick in the water. Lake Washington hovers around 55 degrees all year round.” He said the top 10 inches of water warms up in the summertime around 70 degrees. “One thing people don’t understand is as soon as you get a lot of boat waves or wind waves, it churns up that water and everything is 50 degrees. So if you go out right after a wind storm or a lot of boat traffic, the lake is considerably colder than on a nice calm flat day. That gets a lot of people in trouble too. They’ll jump in, get hypothermic and get into trouble.” Becker outlines several other safety tips that people can follow to prevent drowning:

• If you are swimming alone or swimming outside of a designated swim area, wear a life jacket. • Avoid alcohol when you’re swimming or near water. Across the U.S., 88 percent of drowning victims weren’t wearing a life jacket and more than half the drownings involved alcohol, Becker said. • Anybody venturing out into the lake needs to know and stay within their limits. Becker said the department generally sees this issue with people in the 10-30 year age range more than young children. For example, novice swimmers trying to keep up with more experienced swimmers leads people to trouble, he said. • Be familiar with your swim area. “One major component in our drownings with the 10 and younger age group is an unfamiliarity with the lake,” said Becker. He noted off most Kirkland parks, the depth gently slopes down for the first 30 feet out from shore and then rapidly drops off to depths exceeding 60 feet. “Parents see their young ones playing near the shore and think they are safe, not realizing they are next to a steep ledge,” he said, adding for children ages 1 to 17, drowning is the second-leading cause of accidental death in Washington state. • Be aware of King County’s swimming ordinance on the lake. If you are swimming outside of a designated swim area, you must stay within 50 feet of the shore or a structure such as a dock.

Water rescues Many people are unaware that the Kirkland Fire Department handles water rescues, said Becker. But all 89 firefighters are required to be trained at the operations level, which means they can help support any water rescue. The majority of firefighters are also certified as rescue swimmers and are technician-level trained personnel. Kirkland Fire also trains Redmond firefighters at both levels.

A lifeguard at Juanita Beach Park watches swimmers near a packed beach on a recent sunny afternoon. carrie rodriguez, Kirkland Reporter Becker, who was a lifeguard throughout high school and several years after, took over the program in 2009. Every May when he conducts the annual technicianlevel training for firefighters, he chooses a new Kirkland park and gets them “swimming in that cold water so they know what they’re going to encounter,” Becker said. Last May, they trained at David E. Brink Park. Becker and some instructors hid several adult- and child-size mannequins under the condominiums over the lake. The mannequins have built-in buoyancy compensators so instructors can control their buoyancy and hide them as shallow or as deep as they need to. “We hid them amongst all those pilings in the dark,” Becker said. “The technicians had to use their lights to get down and find them. A lot of our rescues happen at night, or they occur in the daytime right at evening so we’re searching at night. So when you’re out there swimming in the dark and shining the light through the weeds it’s different. They found all the mannequins.” When the firefighters perform an actual water rescue, they rely on witnesses to help triangulate a point of rescue for the firefighters. “We tell them to pick a house on the opposite shore something in line with where they last saw the victim,” Becker noted. “Once they’ve pick that line, then we start sending our rescue swimmers out.” Rescuers use a datum buoy – a weighted buoy – that the swimmer drops into the water and the rescuers use as a starting point. “In the last 12 years, every time we’ve dropped a datum marker, it’s been within 10 feet of the victim. So it’s highly accurate,” he said. In the case with the Kenmore man at O.O. Denny Park, rescuers dropped the datum buoy, which was only 5 feet from the man’s left hand, Becker said. Kirkland Fire currently works in conjunction with the Seattle Police Department, Mercer Island dive team and King County Marine, which provides Kirkland’s dive capability and those agencies can search deeper. Kirkland Fire is currently ramping up its water rescue program and trying to get its own dive program, said Becker. “King County is losing their funding more and more every year and it’s getting harder and harder to get them to respond with a full dive team where they can actually get into the water,” he noted. Kirkland’s biggest challenge is the department doesn’t have its own boat or a working platform to get out on the lake. Becker said the department is currently looking at potentially getting its own boat and jet skis. “So if we have somebody who’s out hundreds of yards, our swimmers have to swim that. If it’s a paddle boarder or an over-turned kayak and you’re out 300 or 400 yards and you swim out that distance, our team is exhausted,” said Becker. “So we’re working right now to try to get jet skis - one jet ski in the north end and one jet ski in the south end just for rapid response out.” Kirkland Fire is looking at other models across the country, such as LA County, Florida and Hawaii and what they do for water rescue. They utilize jet skis because they’re fast, they’re very inexpensive and they’re easy to maintain, said Becker. “We’ve got a really well, highly trained team and they’re really effective at what they do,” he said. “So if we added that next step into the program I think that would make things a lot safer for the rescuers and the citizens.”

But so many drivers think they can talk or charm their way out of a DUI or other charge (after all, we’re taught it’s polite and proper to talk to people and it’s only natural to address someone’s questions to you) only to get arrested after giving over more evidence to convict themselves, rather than clamming up.

King County Metro Transit recently launched a new on-demand bike locker project to offer cyclists a more flexible and efficient option for accessing transit by bicycle. Sixty-eight new bike locker spaces are available at 10 transit facilities, where cyclists can pay a fee to store their bike for 5 cents an hour after buying a $20 access card. The new lockers will be available at the South Kirkland park and ride, once garage construction is complete. Metro already offers about 240 leasable assigned bike lockers at 27 transit facilities to cyclists who agree to ride three or more days per week. Assigned lockers

are available to one person at a time for a one-time refundable $50 key deposit. However, transit agencies throughout the country have found that while assigned bike lockers have high rental rates, the actual daily use remains low since users have no incentive to turn in their key when not using their locker. By using on-demand bike lockers, Metro estimates a possible five-fold increase in usage over the current assigned bike locker system, said Eileen Kadesh, Metro Transit planner overseeing transit bike facilities. The new system gives riders who purchase an access card the option of spontaneously riding to any participating transit facility, including those in other states, instead of being tied to an assigned locker at one location, Kadesh said.

each other. Let me give you an example: Our neighborhood became CERT certified (Community Emergency Response Teams) a few years back. We are able to take care of ourselves for a period of time if professional help is not available through public services. As part of this project, we did a “Map Your Neighborhood” exercise wherein each family designated the location of their gas and water shutoff valves and other important details about their homes, so that other neighbors could help in case of an emergency. But a really neat part of our exercise was that each homeowner listed both resources and skills/ talents that each family has.

the doctor and hospital or even just down to the waterfront for a day out. There is the single parent, often working two jobs, who needs help with the kids – anything from just time off for the parent, to help with homework, guidance and counsel. I could go on. There is the new neighbor, you know, the family who just moved in. They need to be welcomed, shown where the parks are, where the best grocery stores are, given information about the schools, churches and so on. A batch of cookies goes well here too. There are also a lot of families in the neighborhood where talents can be exchanged to help

VOLUNTEERS

raditionally, when I write these articles, I suggest volunteering to particular or recommended organizations that provide public services. Many of these organizations are funded by donations as well as by grants, etc. This article is different. I’d like to present a brand new, old idea. Let’s volunteer within our neighborhoods! There are those in our neighborhoods who need us, need our skills, talents, resources, labor, insight, counsel and friendship. There are the elderly, the infirm – those are obvious. They need help taking care of their homes, being driven to

dens, and I again, could go on. So volunteering doesn’t have to be just to organizations, although they need you badly. For this edition of the column, think about talking to your neighbor about how you could help and are willing to do so, or that you are interested in sharing some duties. By the same token, don’t be afraid to share your needs and wants with your neighbors – very likely they are interested in your welfare as well. Lastly, consider a neighborhood project as a whole – something that would benefit the entire neighborhood – such as landscaping, a play area, painting addresses on the curbs, repairing or replacing community resources like mailbox stands. Heck, in our neighborhood, we even share tools with each other. This way

Documentary about deported Kirkland man raises question of civil liberties | Review By CHRIS LOPAZE UW News Lab

A

fter the 9/11 terrorist attacks, fear of another attack on our soil was, and still is, a shadow over our heads. Now more than a decade after the attack, the debate continues if it’s a necessary evil to compromise traditional American beliefs in rule of law for the sake of security. “Barzan” is a documentary about Sam Malkandi, also known as Barzan. He is an Iraqi refugee who gains asylum in the United States and is living the American Dream; he has a wife, two kids and a home in Kirkland. But that dream is shattered when he was arrested under suspicion of having helped an Al-Qaeda operative. The film begins with an interview with Malkandi showing pictures of his family and then he describes his history before entering the United States. He fled Iraq in the early 1990s after deserting the army, first moving to Iran. In Iran, his wife died by suicide, leaving Mal-

kandi alone with their young daughter, Nicole. This prompted Malkandi to move to Pakistan in hope of providing a better standard of living and education for Nicole. While in Pakistan, he remarried and had a son. Malkandi then applied for asylum in the United States. On the form, he lied about being a political prisoner in Iraq to improve his chances of being given asylum, a common occurrence with refugees. In America, he worked three jobs at one time to provide for his family but he was happy. Then everything he worked so hard for fell apart when he was arrested and put under investigation of involvement with Al-Qaeda. On page 155 of the 9/11 Commission report, an Al-Qaeda operative named Walid bin Attash, or Khallad, gave up a name of a contact in the U.S. who was supposed to help sneak him into the country illegally. Khallad told his interrogators the name sounded like Barzan. There was also a letter

with Malkandi’s address listed as the return address sent by Khallad. Malkandi claimed to have met a mystery man name Ahmed at a mall, and he let him use his address to help Ahmed’s friend in Iraq. There is no record of this person ever entering the U.S. At immigration court, Malkandi confessed to lying

on the immigration form about his status as a political prisoner. There was only circumstantial evidence linking him to any crime, and he was never charged criminally. But immigration court has no rules for evidence, so anything could be introduced. He was sentenced to deportation. He would spend six years in federal detention while waiting on multiple failed appeals all the way up to the Ninth Circuit Court, the court below the U.S. Supreme Court. Malkandi decided to stop fighting

the ruling at that point and chose to accept his deportation to Iraq. The film seems to ask the question: In the process of protecting our nation, is it necessary to lose the civil liberties that make us a free and independent society? Malkandi was never given a trial. He was deported because of his alleged, never proven, involvement with an Al-Qaeda operative.

Bay. The clip is about his trial by military tribunal once again being delayed. The newscaster says he does not think that this trial will ever be resolved. Is preventing another attack worth ruining a man’s life? In the case of Barzan, the American government did not hold itself to the ideals of the country Barzan and his family grew to love and call home. The editing is smooth and the sandpaper animation depicting certain scenes is beautiful to watch. Besides having a larger social and political message, “Barzan” was the emotional human story of a man separated from his family without any due process of law and is deeply touching. “Barzan” was directed by Bred Hutchinson and Alex Stonehill. It’s a project done in collaboration with the Seattle Globalist. Verdict: 3.5 out of 4 stars. Recommended for those interested in government policy towards terrorism and immigration after 9/11 and how they come in conflict with civil liberties.
