The Hussein Defense

From The Blogging of the President: The Hussein Defense

Saddam Hussein's defense against his indictment by an ad hoc Iraqi tribunal is simply that has the head of the state he had unlimited power to defend the state. That enemies of the state did not have legal protection, and therefore he cannot be charged for what he did during that time.

Does that sound like anyone we know? Does it sound like the ideas of someone we might have heard about recently?

But remember, that kind of comparison is wrong and evil and is uncalled for, yet we can't go one day without another right-wing hack regurgitating the talking points trying to desperately associate the left to terrorists.
