"And I come back to you now, at the turn of the tide"

Among the vistors to Reagan's casket (via drudge):
The casket continues to draw visitors from all walks of life -- even new interim Iraqi President Ghazi al-Yawer.

Al-Yawer (pictured left, at center), who took over as Iraq's top leader in the interim government last month, was in coastal Georgia for the G8 Summit on Thursday morning before traveling to Washington with other world leaders for Reagan's funeral service Friday at the National Cathedral.

Al-Yawer was accompanied by Sen. Bill Frist, R-Tenn., as he viewed the casket. Before leaving, he placed his hand over his heart. The line of visitors was halted as al-Yawer made his visit.

I don't begrudge Ghazi al-Yawer his right to pay his respects to a major world leader who passed on. But as an Iraqi exile from the brutal regime of Saddam Hussein, maybe he might want to read up a bit on Reagan's Iraq policy.

Sure, we all remember Reagan's swift condemnation of Saddam's use of chemical weapons at Halabja and elsewhere. Wait...
