By Abdullah Al Araby     

Recent news about the events surrounding Saddam Hussein’s hanging has revealed interesting insights.  Hours before his execution Saddam Hussein and his legal team desperately pleaded that he remains in the hands of the Americans.

Tony Blair

From Foreign Affairs 

Summary:  The war on terrorism is not just about security or military tactics. It is a battle of values, and one that can only be won by the triumph of tolerance and liberty.
