This business of the flag that was temporarily placed on the Saddam statue is so sad. It seems the flag was one that had been flying at the Pentagon on 9/11. Some misguided folks in our military seemed to think that it was fitting symbolism that the flag make an appearance on the soon-to-be destroyed statue. It's symbolism alright but it is pathetic symbolism. It symbolizes that the Bush regime has been effective in perpetrating the lie that Saddam had some sort of hand in the 9/11 attack. It shows that the many Americans can be suckered by accomplished spin doctors combined with their own innate jingoism. Sad. So sad. A truly dark day for this country of potential light.
