Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

Yep, it’s true!

I’m watching a press conference being put on by Paul Bremer and the Iraqi National Council. It’s official--Saddam was taken early this morning in his hometown of Tikrit. Apparently information from Iraqi citizens was critical to his capture by U.S. forces. A video of the prisoner, taken while he was undergoing physical examination, was shown during the conference, and the Iraqis in the room erupted in spontaneous displays of joy and invective (shouting "Death to Saddam") against the former tyrant.

Apparently an amnesty is being offered to all those who are still engaged in hostile operations against coalition troops and supporters of the new Iraq.

I will say this. Those Iraqi’s who stood up and shouted their invective at Saddam’s visage brought tears to my eyes. These people, so oppressed for so many years finally let their emotions go. It was wonderful.
