Neo-
A lot of the issues with BOTH of Saddam's sons was reported long before W. got into office. Look into older news sources. So do a little research and you might be surprised. But my correcting you does not mean that I support this vendetta of W's in any way. I will back the people doing their job as ordered in the military, but my president should be impeached for abuse of power.

Neo, apparently you missed this:
"(SI's attempts to reach Uday for comment through the Iraqi permanent mission to the United Nations were unsuccessful.)"

That would indicate to me that they were attempting to give him a chance to tell his side of the story. Unless of course, that evil leader in the media propaganda campaign, the infamous Sports Illustrated lied about that. You never know.

Seriously, though, I'm having a bit of trouble mustering any sympathy for Iraq's regime. Must be because I'm brainwashed by the media. Or maybe it's because I'm just not fond of a government that will use it's hospitals as military facilities and dress their soldiers as civilians in times of war. "Human shields, anyone?"

I guess if I heard their side of the story, I would understand why a government uses it's people to protect it's military instead of the other way around.

Silly, brainwashed me. I just don't get it.
