What's wrong with this?

The Iraqi government arrested the guy who used his video phone to tape Saddam's execution that showed an angle other than the one they tried to portrait. Was it wrong that he brought to light that this was a Shiite lynching?
Was it wrong that we now know who really runs Iraq?

I would think that Iran would not want to show the cards they hold completely until the States have completely withdrawn from Iraq.

Damn Big Guy, How much more do you want the States to put there that they have not already? Unfortunately, it is a black hole, it will never fill up with resources from the States.

I don't want us to spend another dime over there other than restitution for damages.

Unfortunately George, Dick, the joint chiefs, the Congress nor even the Senate are listening to you on this. When will George get up and tell the nation his new plan for a win/win solution, has it been announced yet?

I see nothing wrong with that. It's not because it's a different angle, it's because it's disrespectful. Even Shiite leaders have expressed anger regarding the people who were disrupting the hanging. It doesn't matter who's dieing, you shouldn't videotape it and spread it on the net. It's not because it shows it as a Shiite lynching, but for the same reason they told the people shouting to shut up.

Without that video we would have been sold the lie that he died in a respectful way and that it was handled in a professional manner. Is it wrong to find this out? Is it wrong to actually realize that Muqtada is the ultimate power broker? These guys that were shouting were picked from the green zone, they supposedly work with us. Do you feel safe?

You must be kidding? Iraq is not some isolated spot we can shit on and not worry that they will send us a posse of bombers one day. You keep your head in the sand while this shit ferments, that's the way to prevent future 911s
