WAN SMILE APPRECIATED
At least Saddam went out with dignity, reports respectful Robert Fisk:
All condemned men face a decision: to die with a last, grovelling plea for mercy or to die with whatever dignity they can wrap around themselves in their last hours on earth. His last trial appearance - that wan smile that spread over the mass-murderer’s face - showed us which path Saddam intended to walk to the noose.
In fact, Saddam went out babbling like an idiot:
I destroyed the enemies of Iraq, and I turned Iraq from poverty into wealth.
Say it swingin’, pal. Terror groupie Fisk also reveals:
Like Donald Rumsfeld, I have even shaken the dictator’s soft, damp hand.
You sure it was his hand, Bob?
