The price of democracy?

Is this reminiscent of the Nazis released by the Allies in post war Europe, or is it just me? Remember the press coverage of these Iraqis before and during the invasion? Why the hell are people with links to gassing people to death being released?

Eight former aides to Saddam Hussein - including two women accused of making biological weapons - have been released from US custody in Iraq.

The freed detainees no longer pose a security threat, a US spokesman said.

They include Huda Salih Mahdi Ammash, nicknamed by the US "Mrs Anthrax" and Rihab Taha, also known as "Dr Germ".

Reports have been circulating of a pre-election deal to free former regime figures in order to appease Iraq's Sunni Arabs, correspondents say.
Well there's your answer. Politics. Dirty politics at that.
