Tony Snow did a press briefing today, and the reporters once again wanted to obsess on Saddam Hussein’s execution. Not on the fact that justice was finally done, after Saddam tormented and murdered hundreds of thousands of innocents, over a period of thirty years. No! The focus of the press corps’ rage was the fact that, for a moment before he dropped through the trap door, Saddam was taunted. Maybe there is some parallel universe in which this makes sense, but I doubt it. I think these journalists are stark, raving mad.
You can see it in this video, which I have excerpted from today’s briefing. It goes completely over the top when one of the assembled journalists asks, “Q Has it been proven that this was a Shia lynch mob that killed Saddam Hussein?” If you stay with it to the end, however, there is a brief moment of comedy.
