More about Saddam
Here's an interesting opinion piece by Andrew Cockburn about the U.S. government's support of Saddam Hussein. The content isn't what makes it interesting -- anyone familiar with the recent history of the region knows everything in it already. What's interesting is that it's in the L.A. Times. It's not exactly a conservative paper, but this kind of honest reflection doesn't make it's way into the mainstream American news media very often. At least not in recent years.
