Saddam Lashes Out at U.S. As Trial Resumes

BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) – A combative Saddam Hussein lashed out Monday at his treatment by American “occupiers and invaders” and lectured the chief judge about leadership as his trial resumed in a rambling and unfocused session.

Two of the seven other defendants also spoke out during the 2 1/2-hour hearing, complaining of their treatment in detention or dissatisfaction with their court-appointed counsel.

Former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark, who has joined the defense team as an advisor, said it was “extremely difficult” to assure fairness in the trial “because the passions in the country are at a fever pitch.”

“How can you ask a witness to come in when there’s a death threat?” Clark told CNN. “Unless there’s protection for the defense, I don’t know how the trial can go forward.”

Clark is a nut job for sure. Let the Iraq court do its job. We should provide security for the trial, but that is all.
