Saddam Letter Follows Leftie Script

The New York Times reports that Saddam Hussein has written a 5,000 word letter at the urging of Ramsey Clark. In it, the Butcher of Baghdad expresses his solidarity with the American Left:
"People of America, the misfortunes that have afflicted you and afflicted our Arab nation and within it our heroic people — including the breakdown of America’s standing and reputation — were only caused by the reckless behavior of your government and by pressure from Zionism.

The massacres and blood that now flows in the streets and countryside of Iraq in torrents — the responsibility for that falls on America before all others."
It's uncanny how much ol' Saddam sounds like Michael Moore or Cindy Sheehan.
