One man's genocidal despot is another's former president: The BBC, its moral vacuum rivaling a moderate-sized black hole, has banned its reporters from referring to Saddam Hussein as a tyrant or dicatator, in favor of "the deposed former President."

“This is our daftest order ever.”
Well, maybe not ever, but it definitely makes the Top 10.
