A videotaped hanging does not bring justice to Saddam's victims, living or dead.

Someone has to say it: The hanging of Saddam Hussein was an act of barbarism that mocks all of Bush's posturing on Iraq.

Justice and reconciliation for the victims of Saddam Hussein will not be found at the end of a hangman's rope.

More violence, waning chances for reconciliation and a trove of secrets taken to the grave.

The death of Chilean strongman Augusto Pinochet should not blunt the
work of healing the damage he has done and shining light on the truth.

Although the United States itches to do away with Hugo Chávez, his socialist
policies are alleviating poverty and earning the people's trust. To
Bush's chagrin, the Venezuelan leader is here to stay.

Bush insisted that Saddam Hussein's trial be held in Iraq so that an international tribunal would never expose America's history of support for the tyrant.

Iraq. As the milestones pile up, so do the bodies.
