What do Charlie Rangel and Al Jazeera have in common?
United States Congressman Charles Rangel (D-NY): The U.S. acted illegally when its soldiers attacked and killed Uday and Qusay Hussein, a leading Democratic congressman complained on Tuesday, before mocking the military maneuver that succeeded in eliminating the brutal duo.
“We have a law on the books that the United States should not be assassinating anybody,” Rep. Charlie Rangel, D-N.Y., told Fox News Channel’s “Hannity & Colmes.”
Al Jazeera Correspondent: Not all the reaction was positive, however. The correspondent for Al Jazeera, the Arab satellite television network that has been a staunch critic of the war, described the two men as having been killed “in cold blood,” and one analyst brought on to comment called the method of their deaths a “crime.”
Apparently, this is the new strategy to win back the red states for the Democrats. Hurts to watch, doesn’t it? Meanwhile, even the ARAB NEWS editorializes in favor of the death of these two villains:
That Uday and Qusay Hussein are dead is a victory for the Americans and, far more important, a victory for the Iraqi people. Both needed the break.
