British Tabloid Prints Humiliating Saddam Pictures

In another public relations fiasco, British tabloid The Sun released pictures today of Saddam Hussein in his underwear among other pictures. Not only is this a violation of the Geneva Conventions, it will also be fodder for more anti-american violence. For practical purposes beyond assigning blame to anyone not a top Pentagon official, it does not make any difference if they find who leaked the pictures. They are already out there and the damage is done. It is particulary bad when we have to spend more time in a public relations damage control campaign than focusing on solving the many problems that face our country, inside and out. The Sun claims that they were given the pictures by a military source to try and discourage the insurgency in Iraq. Now, this is just stupid. I do not know if I can believe that someone would be foolish enough to think this would actually work. But then again, the CIA also said that we would be welcomed with flowers in Baghdad, and there were WMD. Who knows with the incompetency today.
