Liberated, With Extreme Prejudice

I’ve got no real justification for this post other than that I feel the title is disgustingly clever.

[Also: The Onion: “Baghdad resident Taha Sabri, killed Monday in a U.S. air strike on his city, would have loved the eventual liberation of Iraq and establishment of democracy, had he lived to see it, his grieving widow said.” (If you’re not familiar with The Onion, the story is a spoof. You may think it’s in bad taste but like so many of The Onion’s tales there’s an eerie, awkward truth running beneath the uncomfortable humor.)]

[One More: Arthur Schlesinger Jr.: “Today, it is we Americans who live in infamy.”]
