THE LIBERATION OF SAWFAN: Yes, Fox News is inclined to accentuate the positive, and yes, some of these people may be cheering because they think we're in charge and cheering is what we want to hear. But it's still nice to read that a few Iraqis, in Iraq, can now say out loud: "Saddam Hussein is no good. Saddam Hussein a butcher." UPDATE: Fox News either made a mistake or is using a non-standard spelling; the more common one is Safwan, and here's a map. As you can see, this is just over the Kuwaiti border, but this isn't the most recent advance-- the troops are moving very, very fast.
