Do you think Saddam Hussein’s execution marks a turning point in Iraq?
Asked at Borders, 700 N.H. on December 31, 2006
“No, I don’t. I think things have deteriorated so much since the time he was captured that I don’t think it will have very much effect at all.”
“Not exactly. They are going to mark it as a turning point or at least as an important step, but I couldn’t say if it will affect the war.”
“I don’t think it marks a turning point. I think once he was captured and incarcerated he was out of the way. Now there are a whole new set of problems to deal with.”
“No. I think his fate was sealed when he was captured because of his past actions. I don’t think it has anything to do with the ongoing struggle. His impact at this point is negligible.”
