"It seems that even the White House is backtracking, along with the Pentagon and everybody wants to make clear that nobody in the US had anything to do or say about the lynching that took place." - Mark of Lewiston Considering that the execution of Saddam was one of the goals of our conquest of Iraq, it's pretty hard to dissemble at this point. Sure we didn't do it. We just opened the door to our jail and tossed Saddam to the Shiites. My big complaint is that the one person who conducted himself with dignity was Saddam himself. He didn't deserve to be made to look good by a Shiite Death Squad. But then one must consider that the main players in the Iraqi government, Darwa and SCIRI, both operate numerous death squads, and have them paid for by the US in the form of wages for the Army and Police, what did we expect?
