The hole-in-the-ground question

Barry Levinson, the director of films such as Rain Man and Wag the Dog, asks: “How did Saddam Hussein end up in a hole in the ground with a rug and a fan? How is that possible? How could anything so absurd happen?”

In an excellent piece in The Baltimore Sun, Levinson answers that question as well as, in the process, another pertinent one: How could so many people have been mistaken about Saddam’s WMD when he simply didn’t have any?
