Here is an image that we did not see yesterday:

I found this picture on a very interesting anti war site called Shock & Awe. Examine the center of the picture...the tank is still close to the pedestal...the statue has tumbled...note the size of the crowd at this moment shortly after "the moment". Interesting, huh? The NYC Indy Media Center site also has the photo.
The web is buzzing with ideas and discussion of this event. There is this on Democratic Underground which suggests that some members of the jubilant Iraqi crowd televised during yesterday's statue tumble were recent traveling companions of Ahmed Chalabi.
Additionally, there have been increasing search engine requests for "Colonel Joe Dowdy" in the last few days. The Colonel, no matter his invisibility in the mainstream media, has been a frequently requested search criteria since his removal became public.

Also according to ABC News, 3rd battalion, 4th Marines Regimental Marine Corporal Edward Chin, the soldier who draped the US flag on the statue head of Saddam says he was just following orders in the minutes before the statue was pulled to the ground in a joint effort by jubilant Iraqis and U.S. troops. "I was just trying my best to get the chain around his neck and put the flag on his head...pretty much at the moment I was just doing what I was told to do by my commanding officer," he said.
