There is great moral confusion surrounding Hussein’s capture by those whose dislike of America runs deeper than logic itself. Case in point, this Palestinian legislator feels the need to quickly reference American occupation when talking about Hussein’s capture.
“Saddam is a dictator and the Iraqi people suffered under him, but on the other hand, it was the (American) occupation that caught him,” Mohammed Horani, a legislator with the Palestinian Parliament, said in the Gaza Strip.
Because of his penchant for America-bashing, it’s shameful that he feels the need to point out the bad in something so good. While he concedes that Hussein caused great suffering to his people, there should be no “other hand.” American troops scored a huge victory today, and it is evident that America’s detractors won’t give credit where credit is due.
