Visit his site, if you haven’t. And remember that he, like other independent blogger-journalists like Michael Totten, Bill Roggio, and Bill Ardolino — and independent documentarians like Pat Dollard or J.D. Johannes — is dependent on reader/viewer contributions for support. So if you like his work, consider donating. Meanwhile, I’ll note that Saddam also thought our politicians couldn’t take the heat, and it isn’t clear yet whether he was wrong about that, though he’s certainly in no position to find out.
