Let's Make A Deal?

You're not going to believe this, but according to this report from Ynetnews.com, Donald Rumsfeld's latest trip to Iraq wasn't just to shake hands with coalition forces. It seems Rummy paid a visit to his old friend, Saddam Hussein and asked him if he would like what's behind door number 3.

According to the London based Al-Quds Al-Arabi daily newspaper Rumsfeld offered Saddam freedom and a possible return to public life in return for a televised request to armed Iraqi terrorists for a cease fire with coalition troops. It is said that Saddam rejected the offer.

The Peach is somewhat stunned that this administration would allow Rumsfeld to make such an offer to someone they hold in such low regard. It stinks of desparation and gives the insurgents further assurance that they are in fact winning.

If the story is true one would think Saddam would accept the offer considering the alternative: execution. The Peach suspects he may be holding out for that plasma TV set or, even better, A BRAND NEW CAAARRRR!!!
