Saddam Leaving, One Way or Another

You can feel that things are coming down to the wire. Deadlines are approaching, actions are about to be taken that will be consequential. It is complicated, but the trick in this high stakes poker game is to look in the right place. Don’t, for example, look to CNN reports on what is going on in the UN, on who is saying what to whom, who’s going wobbly, etc. Look to Saddam, Bush, and Blair; and they’re still holding their original hands. No one is folding. Yet. This Michael Kelly column is pretty good. And then there is this report on the Arab plan to exile Saddam. He has sent a senior aide to Cairo to discuss "personal issues." The end of the game is in sight.
