Reading Rights

For perhaps the first time in decades, someone in Iraq was informed of his rights under the law. Among those on the receiving end of the rights reading were a who’s who of those most responsible for the withholding of such rights in the past including Tariq Aziz, Chemical Ali and Saddam.

Even the worst of the worst and the most guilty of the guilty have rights in a free society. It is something we were reminded of by the Supreme Court earlier this week and it is something that we were reminded of even more dramatically as Saddam and his thugs were informed that even they will get their days in court.

Concentration is important!
