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

Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

"A smart fellow...I do like, recommend and learn from Barbera's blog." -Roger L. Simon
"Your blog is bullshit"- anonymous angry French reader.
"Sahhaf's cousin told me he wants to give himself up, but with certain conditions," the former Iraqi general says. "They know I had a connection with Jay Garner and I sent him to see Garner. But I warned him not to set conditions with the Americans.
"He wants to be outside Iraq," said the general, who did not wish to be identified. "He wants to get to Egypt. He has a lot of money stashed there in a bank and loves those Egyptian women very, very much."
For one thing, it's not his money. It is money stolen from the people of Iraq. He is a nothing, what can he offer the Coalition that they would be willing to make that kind of a deal? His options are surrender, unconditionally or wait until the Iraqi people get him and administer justice themselves.
