Our son of a bitch

I was interested to read that our new, ally in Iraq, Prime Minister Iyad Allawi (a former CIA asset and Saddam henchman), is reported to have personally shot several insurgents who were in custody. So, at least, says the Sydney Morning Herald, a publication I have always found trustworthy previously.

Although Tony Blair -- not a disinterested party -- has dismissed the report, the Herald account comes to us via eyewitnesses.

Interesting, isn't it? The same Americans who tell us that we had to get rid of Saddam because he was a lawless monster will no doubt applaud Allawi for acting thuggishly.
