Two more cards out of the deck
CNN is airing reports from Iraq that the 101st Airborne Division probably killed Saddam's sons, Uday and Qusay, in a firefight in Mosul. They have bodies this time, as opposed to the last two times we probably killed them, so there should be a comfirmation of some sort soon.

I'm not sorry to see either of these two go. They have plenty of blood on their hands. The television report is saying one of the other bodies recovered from the fight might be a grandson of Saddam's. I know nothing about the grandson, so I don't know whether he has done anything to deserve death aside from staying with his father.

No doubt the administration will hail this as a major victory over global terrorism and try to use it to push their intelligence troubles off the front page for a few news cycles.
