15 Dec 2003 An Idiot Hiding in a Hole
From Time.com, this tidbit from the interrogation of Saddam Hussein: “When offered a glass of water by his interrogators, Saddam replied, ‘If I drink water I will have to go to the bathroom and how can I use the bathroom when my people are in bondage?'”
He hasn’t been to the bathroom since April?
The Time story ends on this: “The official said it may soon be clear how much command and control over the insurgency Saddam actually had while he was in hiding. ‘We can now determine,’ he said, ‘if [Saddam] is the mastermind of everything or not.’ The official elaborated: ‘Have we actually cut the head of the snake or is he just an idiot hiding in a hole?'”
