Letter: World was safer place with Saddam in power

World was safer place with Saddam in power

I was reading The News recently and couldn’t believe the remark from Jeb Bush in regard to the Iraq invasion. Do he and his cronies really believe that taking out Saddam Hussein did not mess up the Middle East? Come on!

Saddam was a criminal, and most would agree he terrorized his people. But the one thing he was good at and that is missed now is he had utter control over any terrorist group that came into his area. There was no ISIS or al-Qaida or Boko Haram or any other group in his domain.

We will be putting up with the stupidity of removing Saddam for a long time. So, thank you, George and Co., for messing up big-time.
