CNN.com - Pentagon: Saddam's sons are dead - Jul. 22, 2003
First, good riddance to bad rubbish. As they say, when they meet their maker they are going to have some 'splainin to do.
Second, I love how the press always has to throw their two cents in.
For example, from the NYT: "Although some loyalists to Mr. Hussein — either paid or prodded by his sons — are suspected of killing Americans, the attacks are also likely being carried out by Iraqis opposed to the very idea of occupation, tribal members bent on revenge for dead relatives and fanatics who believe Islam is at war with the West."
And from al Jazeera (via MSNBC): "Even as Al Jazeera broadcasts suggested, without offering evidence, that these deaths would spark widespread unrest, there appeared to be a consensus, at least on the American side, about the importance of the operation."
Everybody has to rain on the parade.
Matt -- I can't stop cracking up over the "TRUMPED" banner on CNN's main page...
