Before you get too excited....
Yes, it's a good thing that we captured Saddam. However...
Yahoo! News - Iraq Car Bombs Kill Nine Day After Saddam's Capture :
"If anyone imagined Saddam's capture would bring swift peace, the words of U.S.-trained Iraqi policeman Ahmed Ali may cause them to think again.

'We want this to lead to more attacks on the Americans. There will be a holy war against them. It will be much worse. We all love Saddam,' he said, standing near U.S. soldiers he works with in Falluja, confident they would not understand his Arabic."

I'm not sure which bothers me more: that he's a US-trained policeman, or that he was willing to say that within earshot of US soldiers.
