More on the horrors of Iraq. Boston Globe columnist Jeff Jacoby doesn't seem to think it matters whether we find weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. I disagree -- after all, that was our most prominently stated purpose for going to war.

However, there's no question that we put a halt to one of the most gut-wrenching humanitarian crises in the world: the torture and murder performed routinely by the regime of Saddam Hussein and his sons, especially Uday.

Three more horrifying reports on the particulars, in the current Newsweek, and in today's New York Times and Boston Globe.

Even if George W. Bush's adventure comes to a bad end; even if his intentions were less than pure going in; he has to get at least some credit for putting an end to such evil.
