“Appearing in the Rose Garden with his cabinet to talk about a balanced budget, the president turned his back and walked away when a reporter called out to ask whether he believed that the hanging had been handled appropriately. Officials said that the White House had decided the execution did not “rise to the level of a presidential comment”.
Oh. So, just to clarify: the “brutal dictator” who was at the center of the entire invasion of Iraq, the man who “threatened the world with nuclear weapons” in the “form of a mushroom cloud”, of which “we know for certain he has them,” the man who was the entire reason we launched the United States’ first pre-emptive war in history, causing more than 3000 U.S. deaths, tens of thousands of injuries, and more than $500 billion in costs…that man’s death doesn’t “rise to the level of presidential comment.”
I got nothin.
