have some more cake, you already ate what you got 

I can't find this release on their website, so you'll just have to trust me that the Council on American Islamic Relations published the following statement via their e-mail list:
"As we continue to oppose the war in Iraq, we hope the capture of Saddam Hussein creates a window of opportunity for peace and reconciliation. He must be brought before an international tribunal and then punished for the death and devastation his tyrannical rule imposed on that long-suffering nation and its neighbors.

"Hussein's capture should also facilitate the rapid transfer of sovereignty to a representative Iraqi government and the swift withdrawal of American military forces. It is now time for the Iraqi people, free of despotic rule or foreign occupation, to take control of their own destiny."
If you "continue to oppose the war in Iraq" doesn't that mean you oppose all outcomes of that war? How can you both oppose the war, yet support the hand over of sovereignty to the Iraqi people? The Iraqi people would never have been sovereign if it were not for the war...
