Sounds like we got Hussein. Three quick thoughts: 1) Between Hussein and Osama bin Laden, Hussein was the more desirable target; 2) This will hurt Howard Dean, even in the Democrat primaries–perhaps not fatally because he has such a huge head of steam, but it will hurt; 3) Having Hussein alive rather than dead may be good for the Bush administration, in the sense that this horrible man will be put on trial and kept in the public eye–rather than dead and forgotten.
