Cheap shot my ass. I'm sure we all remember when the US media paraded
the children had liberated from Saddam's prisons. Less publicized was
the fact that they were actually orphanages. But when the US locks up
children - and goes to great effort to hide it - lets just give them
the benefit of the doubt.
Perhaps the goal is to ensure that whatever dictator the US is planning
to put in place when they cut and run - he'll look a whole lot better
than an American occupation.
(Now thats a cheap shot)
