Saddam Hussein watched the naming of a Kurdish president on television from his cell.
That's cool. But Bakhtiar Amin, interim minister of human rights noted:
[Saddam had] seen an election, and the parliament elected a president, and it's not like before where the transfer of power was done through the shedding of blood, military coups and invasions.
And what we just did was what? A tea party? Lessee...
Shedding of blood. Check.
Military coup. Check.
