“The Horrors of Peace”

Stephen Hayes of the Weekly Standard has a terrific piece out based on a visit and interviews with Iraqi exiles in the United States, who talk in detail about the ghoulish misery the tyrant of Baghdad has inflicted upon his people. Buried deep in the story is an anecdote about how during the Gulf War, when the first Bush administration was busy betraying the same Iraqis it had successfully urged to rise up against Saddam, Paul Wolfowitz personally intervened with Dick Cheney, then the Secretary of Defense, to save 30,000 Iraqi patriots set for massacre by Saddam.
