I've never heard Severin, but he sounds like all the other phony conservatives who think Saddam Hussein's rape rooms were not reason enough for deposing him.

"equivalent of them") and he keeps referring to
one Boston Globe columnist who challenged him on it,
Scot Lehigh, as "Scat He-Lies".
WPRO in Providence runs him on Sunday nights. Their
webpage was pointed to jayseverin.org by mistake:
that's actually an anti-Jay site (or Jay watchdog,
depending on one's point of view)
