Saddam was a brutal dictator ' yes he was, just like all the other brutal dictators the US has and continues to support when they fully support US goals. Saddam's worst atrocities came when he was considered a valuable US asset, and done with the full knowledge and support of the US government.
The highlighted comment was well known by anyone following Iraq and terrorism. Bin Laden hated Saddam as much as he hated the west....if not more. Neglecting the unfinished business in Afghanistan to invade Iraq was an unbelievably stupid move, but the pussies on both sides of the aisle went along rather than be accused of being unpatriotic.
It's amazing how much was lost and damage done, yet no vigorous inquiry or investigation into the invasion and motivation for the attack. Where were the 'special prosecutors' and call for impeachment?
No 'morale' outrage by the hypocrites of the far right this time.
