Tuesday Linkfest: The AP Sympathizes With Sunnis

We have seen those on the Left, including in the media, fawn over Saddam and sympathize with his execution over the last few days, forgetting what a monster he actually was. Now, the AP provides a sympathetic piece on Sunnis, apparently forgetting that it is the Sunnis who have been causing most of the problems in Iraq, and that Al Qaeda is Sunni

Sunnis Muslims, angered by the execution of Saddam Hussein and the way his hanging was carried out, took to the streets in mainly peaceful demonstrations in Sunni enclaves across the country.

A crowd of Sunni mourners in Samarra marched to a bomb-damaged Shiite shrine Monday and were allowed by guards and police to enter the holy place carrying a mock coffin and photos of the former dictator.

A broken clock is correct twice a day, and Sunnis are peaceful now and then. The story does mention that it was Sunnis who damaged the mosque.

Hundreds of demonstrators on Monday mourned Saddam in a Sunni neighborhood in northern Baghdad. Some praised the Baath Party, the outlawed nationalist group that under Saddam cemented Sunni Arab dominance of Iraq.

Mourners at a mosque in Saddam's hometown of Tikrit slaughtered sheep as a sacrifice. The mosque's walls were lined with condolence cards from tribes in southern Iraq and Jordan who were unable to travel to the memorial.

Sunnis were not only outraged by Saddam's hurried execution, just four days after an appeals court upheld his conviction and sentence. Many were also incensed by the unruly scene in the execution chamber, captured on video, in which Saddam was taunted with chants of "Muqtada, Muqtada, Muqtada."

Fawning. The AP makes it seem as if Ghandi had been executed, not a brutal, murderous, meglomaniac.

Mixed in were the random mentions of US troop deaths, which have little to do with the story, just typical MSM hysteria.
