Bush to Speak on Saddam Verdict

"This is a good day for Iraq," is supposed to be the line.

"Saddam Hussein's trial is a milestone in the Iraqi people's effort to replace the rule of a tyrant with the rule of law," Bush told reporters in Waco as he left for Nebraska and Kansas to campaign for Republican candidates.

"It is a major achievement for Iraq's young democracy and its constitutional government," he said.


And, everyone knows a "good day for Iraq" is a bad day for Democrats. It's an unfortunate position to be in, for them. To wit, I just watched Dem Claire McCaskill on Fox saying, "It's a positive thing that Saddam was sentenced to death. Justice has been done for his victims, and I support its being carried out, but..."

See? Unfortunate that she has to tack a "but" on there.

Video of Bush's remarks, here.

Ace is tracking the media take on this.

The judge in the Saddam trial calls Ramsey Clarke "a mockery."

DU: "We need Saddam alive to testify at Bush's war crimes trial."

Video: Saddam's reaction, "Allahu Akbar!"

Via Allah, a photo essay on the massacre at Dujail, for which Saddam was convicted this morning.

Update: The U.N. still not in favor of punishing Saddam. Surprise.
