Commentary, World Views and Occasional Rants from a small 'l' libertarian in Massachussetts

"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

Sahhaf is on the run.

"They seem to have flown the coop," he said. "About three hours ago I saw the director of the press centre heading north in a car with some aides. There's been no sign of the Information Minister."

Also a little history on the man. Just like Stalin's inner circle he proved his loyalty by giving up family

In 1963 he joined a violent group led by Saddam that targeted opponents of the Ba'ath Party.

He then proved his loyalty to Saddam by revealing the whereabouts of his brother-in-law, an army general and the country's military prosecutor.

His relative was then killed by Ba'ath Party militias, and al-Sahhaf's future was secured.

I hope he's not dead, yet. I want to see his war crimes trial.
