Thosethingswesay... Right Again!

Okay, go down past the Bush-527 stuff to my post on Moqtada Sadr in Iraq, where I recommended not killing the guy and trying to make a leader out of him.

This, from Slate's "Today's Papers" August 28th, 2004:

"The NYT notes that Sadr agreed to help prep for the country's first national elections in January, and speculates that the U.S. decision to let him walk away from murder charges was "based on the hope that the young leader, who commands a large following in Iraq's Shiite slums, could be coaxed into the political mainstream."

If anyone wants to you, know, pay me for my wonkery... I'll gladly accept.
