AN EXAMPLE OF WHY IRAQ IS COSTING BUSH SUPPORT
Juan Cole has a post up about rioting former Iraqi secret police in Baghdad who want their jobs back
Err...why are these characters not rotting in jail awaiting an international tribunal to try them for crimes against humanity ? If there is any group in Iraq for which justice could be served expeditiously by the use of rope and a handy tree it's the gruesome torturers and thugs of Saddam's Mukhabarat and Amn. These are the guys who fed people into woodchippers and ran toddler prisons not long ago.
That these Baathist murderers are walking around free, much less having the temerity to riot is nothing less than a declaration of sheer incompetence on the part of the Occupational government and whomever in the Bush administration has been running things behind the scenes. I am completely disgusted.
