REAL-TIME ANALYSIS: The Saddam speech

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 12:13 am

REAL-TIME ANALYSIS: The Saddam speech is still going on. For those who are eagerly checking in to Patterico’s Pontifications for real-time analysis, you made the right choice. Here is my instant opinion, untainted by influences from talking heads:

1. That’s him.
2. He looks fine.
3. He has not said anything specific to prove that this is not a tape (no newspapers held up or references to specific events), but I don’t think it is a pre-recorded pep talk. Although the speech is mostly platitudes, his references to our land troops avoiding engagements are right on target. This might represent a good guess made before the fact, but I don’t think so.

Conclusion: Saddam is alive and well.
