US hawk admits Iraq war 'illegal'

Al Jazeera has gotten plenty of bad press back here in the US, but their articles don't seem any more tilted to me than any U.S.-based paper is for the U.S. point of view - especially the truly right-wing papers like The Washington Times, the New York Post, or The Wall Street Journal. Well, just my opinion. I report, you decide.

Anyhoo, Al Jazeera has a story that's been making the rounds in a lot of the international fishwraps. It seems whenever Americans go out of country they seem to forget that there's this thing that Al Gore invented that helps information get places quickly.

"I think in this case international law stood in the way of doing the right thing," said Perle in London in comments published by the British media on Thursday. "International law ... would have required us to leave Saddam Hussein alone."
Let's see if this gets any press in the WaPost or on Meet the Press.
