IRAQ DEATH TOLL UPDATED
Famed shoe-thrower Muntadhar al-Zeidi is still in jail, due to appear in court again this week. He should be released. That said, some of his defenders are talking complete crap:
Zeidi's brother, Dargham, said he should be treated as "a national hero who deserves a medal" and not as a criminal.Millions?
He urged the government to consider the motives behind his brother's actions. "He was simply taking some revenge for the millions of Iraqis who were killed by Bush. We believe his trial is illegal and unfair," he added.
