But it’s only 15 days away, right?

Follow along kids:

President Bush said today that his administration was making plans to transfer custody of Saddam Hussein to the new Iraqi interim government. But he refused to be pinned down on exactly when the transfer would take place.

Saddam Hussein must either be released from custody by June 30 or charged if the US and the new Iraqi government are to conform to international law, the International Committee of the Red Cross said last night. [link]

Spanish Defense Minister Jose Bono said Monday that he does not think the Iraqi interim government will receive full sovereignty transfer from the US-led coalition on June 30, a date set by the newest UN resolution for Iraq’s power handover. [link]

We also do not have to hand him over until there’s a cessation of active — cessation of active hostilities, and the repatriation doesn’t begin until after that. Hostilities, unfortunately, continue. [link]

Since when does the rule of law apply to the Lord of the Realm! You peasants sure are getting uppity nowadays.


Five words:

Dead men tell no tales.

The last thing in the world that BushCo wants is Saddam in a place where he can talk. If they receives assurances from Alawi that the New Iraqi Government™ will rip his vocal cords out, and then summarily behead him (after a fair trial held between 1:30AM and 2:00AM Baghdad Standard Time the day following handover), Saddam might be returned to the Iraqis someday.

Or not.


We didn’t know at the time that he revealed his post war plans in this photo. He is obviously miming “We will stick our thumbs up Iraqis’ asses.”


“I mean, really, what is the big deal? We go in there. We’re in there for a while. We come right back out here. It’s not complicated. ”

So, who said that? Was it Seinfeld or Rumsfeld?
