Jim Hoagland of the Washington

Jim Hoagland of the Washington Post has been Saddam Hussein’s most persistent critic among journalists for the past two decades. In today’s column, he argues that Saddam’s 12,000-page report has sealed his fate, eliminating the slight chance that the dictator will slip out of the noose, as he did with the “hubristic first President Bush and the clueless Bill Clinton.” According to Hoagland, “having to defend that mess of a report should embarrass even the Russians and the French.” Unfortunately, while Hoagland has always had the right line on Saddam, his assessment of the Russians and the French may be too generous.
