Sadaam's capture story more Bush B.S.?

"A former U.S. Marine who participated in capturing ousted Iraqi President Saddam Hussein said the public version of his capture was fabricated.

Ex-Sgt. Nadim Abou Rabeh, of Lebanese descent, was quoted in the Saudi daily al-Medina Wednesday as saying Saddam was actually captured Friday, Dec. 12, 2003, and not the day after, as announced by the U.S. Army.

"I was among the 20-man unit, including eight of Arab descent, who searched for Saddam for three days in the area of Dour near Tikrit, and we found him in a modest home in a small village and not in a hole as announced," Abou Rabeh said."

This story is being denied by the Pentagon. But after the revelations about how the military completely fabricated and staged parts of the Jessica Lynch story, anything's possible.

Why don't you have a "thread" about the wild Atlanta murder spree. You could localize the issue to the QC-area judges and whether folks feel safe here.
Atlanta is going to ripple throughout the munipalities in the Greater US, Dope.

You're in the wrong line for telling me what I should write about. Those go throught e-mail. Thanks.

And frankly, judges feeling safe is pretty much a matter for them to deal with. Perhaps the judges that visit the site can tell use their thoughts on the matter themselves.

Otherwise I don't let tabloid cable news freak-out of the moment stuff dictate what goes up on the site. What would I cover after that story? Michael Jackson's trial?
