    Ok, Cs & cowboy, Why so sure SH is 9-11 clean? There were a concerning many people on the Dem blogs this morning disputing whether the recently captured was really Saddam. I questioned whether these good people were just immediate dis mode due to political slant. How 'bout you?

      The issue isn't whether I'm "sure SH is 9-11 clean," but whether those who claim that SH was responsible for 9-11 have made their case.   As far as I know, they haven't made their case.   Until they do, I remain skeptical about that as about all unproved hypotheses.

      Apart from the absence of convincing evidence, there is another reason for skepticism: an administration desperate for a Saddam-9-11 connection has long been systematically promoting the appearance of a link by propaganda, innuendo, and the repetition of unfounded claims.  The burden is on those who say that the evidence this time is real.

        And you're right of course, C S. But the reality is that we now have Saddam, don't we. What will he say? Wouldn't it be nice if it were nothing more than the truth?

          Yes.

          I suppose that the only way to have any hope of knowing whether he is telling the truth would be to have a full and open trial, without coercion, and with vigorous representation by both sides.  A highly unoriginal idea on my part, I'm afraid.

            C S, Any recent speculation in regard to this has of course been disputed. Maybe we will have a "first". Maybe we will finally have the truth between us as fellow countrymen pertaining to an enemy of our state. Or is he not your enemy; C S ?

              What an odd question. I thought you knew that Saddam Hussein was my godfather.

              Just kidding. Unlike Donald Rumsfeld, I've never met with or personally helped the old thug.
