Christmas With Saddam

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports that U.S. interrogators are likely to subject Saddam Hussein to sleep deprivation and a diet of inedibile food in an effort to extract information. My initial thought was why not take this to its logical conclusion: insist that he breastfeed an infant. Then I was reminded the Geneva Conventions "outlaw the use of severe pain or suffering, either physical or mental." So that's out, I guess.

Soothie Christmas to all, and to all a good bite!
