AP - Moral Ambiguity
Anything wrong with this?
AP infers by its sentence structure that a violent backlash (presumably by Sunnis and Baathists) against the verdict in Saddam's war crimes trial is equally morally egregious to Saddam's presumed death penalty.
What is wrong with this world? Has justice lost its meaning? Has victory for the victim become a vacant ideal?
Interestingly, this AP piece does not report that the verdict handed down by an Iraqi Court will be subject to an automatic review by another judicial panel.
The AP is seriously not interested in justice. It is interested in ensuring that it sticks up for the right-to-life of a murderous, unseated dictator.
Update: Saddam gets the noose. Automatic judicial review pending.
Saddam Hussein was convicted and sentenced Sunday to death by hanging for war crimes in the 1982 killings of 148 people in the town of Dujail, as the former leader, trembling, shouted "God is great!"
