cyrus, dude, just let it go. he's commander in chief, head of the military. we just stomped all over iraq and, for better or worse, there's a lot of distraught people there. he took an ineffectual symbolic shot at a guy that is a legitimate non-civilian target. and he's likely going to pay dearly for that. if it were a US reporter, i'd say it's inexcusable. but given the way the president seems to be smirking and taking it in stride, i wouldn't be surprised if he tries to work in some kind of pardon for the guy on his way out. and if he did, it's probably even strengthen relations between us and the iraqis.
