The oddest sentence in the entire newswire tonight has to be this one from the AP's coverage of Saddam's sentencing:

Lost in the drama of Sunday's death sentence was any mention of the failed search for the alleged weapons of mass destruction that Bush said led the United States to invade and occupy Iraq in March 2003.

Never mind that that wasn't what Saddam was on trial for. Is "any mention" of something "lost in the drama" if a mention of it is made in the coverage of that thing by the world's largest media organization?
