So we’ve caught Saddam….

But what is really driving me crazy about the current media coverage of Saddam’s capture is the way it is being characterized as achieved “without a shot fired.”

Pardon me for saying so, but it seems to me that what’s been happening in Iraq for the past several months is a whole lot of shots being fired–the result being Iraqi and American deaths. To say that this capture has been achieved without shots being fired whitewashes the many deaths since the American invasion of Iraq.
