How's this for losing your mind in the wind of passing gas?
"AMMAN (Reuters) - The United States should free Saddam Hussein if it wants to end its problems in Iraq and earn the friendship of Arabs, the former Iraqi president's lawyer wrote in a letter to U.S. President George W. Bush.
The chief lawyer for Saddam at his trial for crimes against humanity in Baghdad told Bush that Iraqis who supported their former leader were waiting for a bold decision from the world's most powerful statesman to free him.
"I call on you (President Bush) to release Mr. President (Saddam) immediately to allow the Iraqis to decide his fate. Only then will you get out of your predicament in Iraq and truly become an advocate of justice," Khalil Dulaimi wrote in a letter obtained by Reuters.
Such a decision would prove to be the panacea that would end Washington's woes over Iraq, Dulaimi asserted.
"Your relations with Iraq will then be historic and you will win the favor of the Arabs and Muslims and the entire world," Dulaimi said, adding that it was the only way to spare Iraq from undergoing a bloody civil war.
"Iraq is heading now toward a destructive civil war... release him so that wounds can heal and his people unite."
Dulaimi also said it will become clear to Bush that Saddam's two-month-old trial is a farce of false witnesses and lies that should be ended. "
Speechless that's what I am!
"While I was Googling for this story, by the way, I came across a "Free Saddam" online petition with 177 signatures on it. Nice. I wonder when they'll start printing T-shirts. And if they do, how long it would take for Howard Dean to have his picture taken in one.
I thought I was joking about that last part, but thinking on it, Dean really is the Great Gaffe-Master and I reckon he could master that one."
