You can't handle the truth!

In an interview with the Washington Post, Iraqi President Jalal Talabani describes an episode in Saddam Hussein's pretrial proceedings:

Talabani, based on a conversation with the judge in the case, recounted a scene right out of the movie "A Few Good Men." Asked about the mass killings, Hussein sat silent, refusing to utter a word, Talabani said. But Hussein was taunted, asked if he was afraid to say he carried out such an act. Hussein said, "I am not afraid," and defiantly admitted he ordered the killings. Talabani said the judge has a video and recording of the confession.

What a buffoon. While this makes it clear that the Iraqi people really are lucky to be rid of such a murdering egomaniac, it also reminds me of how little of a threat Hussein really posed to the U.S.
