The Big Hug

Billmon had pointed this out earlier, but it's worth bringing up again. The Bush SOTU "event," drooled over by bloggers and fawning pundits was the hug that Safia Taleb al-Suhail gave to the mother of man killed in Iraq (this was back before the mothers of dead soldiers were demonized by our media). Her discontent with the current situation should, by virtue of this event, be a story worth revisiting. To put it bluntly, Suhail apparently no longer thinks that this is a noble cause.
