Do we need to be reminded that Saddam Hussein was a very bad man? Yes, because even when he's raving in the dock at his on-again, off-again trial, he can seem like a distant abstraction given the mess the U.S. has made of the post-invasion occupation.
Now comes Foreign Affairs magazine with a detailed look at a report commisioned by the U.S. Forces Joint Command on Saddam's brutal dictatorship. Unbelievable!
