Daniel RaeburnThe banality of evil that Sacco is ultimately concerned with, however, is his own. He and his journalist pals tracked Karadzic only to get the scoop on his whereabouts, not to bring him to justice, and so the target of Sacco's humor is himself. That night, with some Sarajevan victims of Karadzic's campaign, Sacco sees himself and the would-be killer of his hosts on the evening news. Sacco is embarrassed, especially because he alone knows the truth, which is that "going to see [Karadzic] was the most fun I'd had at Christmas in years." Bang. As with George Orwell's final sentence in "Shooting an Elephant," Sacco's aim is dead-on.
