DEAD TERRORIST DIRTBAG WATCH: When a guy who even the PLO thought was "too extreme" gets bumped off, I can't say I'm shedding many tears. Abu Nidal died yesterday, after a lifetime spent plotting and carrying out the deaths of hundreds of people, as well as working towards the destruction of the state of Israel. Nidal was even kicked out of the PLO in the early '80s when he was deemed a liability, and retaliated by assassinating a top PLO moderate (believe it or not, there once was a time when Arafat's gang had "moderates").
The Iraqi government ruled the death a suicide, a conclusion must be considered a bit suspect, considering that Nidal was shot several times, and also (of course) that it was reported by the Iraqi government in the first place. The announcement came from Saddam's Deputy Prime Minister Tariq Aziz, who Gulf War-era CNN watchers may remember as the guy who looked at all times like he was wearing Funny Nose Glasses. And on the eve of their removal, it also hurts the credibility of the Iraqi regime that this terrorist, one of the worst in the world, was living as a free man in Baghdad.
At any rate, we can all be glad that Nidal died without ever witnessing his lifelong goal of the extermination of Israel, and also that unlike so many other Islamo-fascist terrorist goons, when he committed "suicide," he didn't take any others with him.
