Say what?

07.28.04

I don’t always agree with L. Ian Macdonald, but I generally think he’s fairly intelligent. So that’s why I was so surprised to read, in the midst of an article expressing wonder that Kerry isn’t leading Bush in the polls, a nonsensical statement like this:

There weren’t terrorists in Iraq under Saddam, but there are now under the American occupation.

No terrorists in Iraq under Saddam? Really now? What would you call Saddam’s sons? Saddam himself? Or perhaps systematically gassing his entire Kurdish population doesn’t count as terrorism.

Well, I guess Macdonald is just being a typical Canadian in his dislike for Bush, and is letting that dislike affect his thinking.
