A Matter of Opinion, Maybe?

According to Pentagon spokesperson Victoria Clarke, Saddam Hussein is the worst dictator in world history”, including Stalin and Hitler (and Pol Pot, and Mao, and Milosevic, and…). The erstwhile Reuters reporter comes through for once, giving us a glimpse of a world in which the media really worked, with what might just be the understatement of the year: “Saddam has been condemned for his exceptional brutality against his own people but historians generally agree that Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler and Soviet leader Josef Stalin were responsible for killing more people than any other dictators in world history.”

Prediction: Ms. Clarke’s days as Pentagon spokesperson are numbered.
