So we've caught Saddam....

But what is really driving me crazy about the current media coverage of Saddam's capture is the way it is being characterized as achieved "without a shot fired."

Pardon me for saying so, but it seems to me that what's been happening in Iraq for the past several months is a whole lot of shots being fired--the result being Iraqi and American deaths. To say that this capture has been achieved without shots being fired whitewashes the many deaths since the American invasion of Iraq.
