Boo Hoo

The prisoner Saddam Hussein is being treated more humanely than he treated a single one of his countrymen. But that’s not good enough for some people.

VATICAN CITY (Reuters) – A top Vatican official said Tuesday he felt pity and compassion for Saddam Hussein and criticized the U.S. military for showing video footage of him being treated “like a cow.”

Mean Americans. Treating a prisoner like a prisoner.
What did he expect? That we’d put Saddam up in one of his palaces and respect his privacy?
We are Americans. We will treat Saddam humanely even though he doesn’t deserve it at all.
Iraqis needed to see his ugly mug on the tv. You’re not the target audience, Cardinal. And history is not a sunday school lesson.
