Saddam Hussein's Death Sentence Affirmed

Those Iraqi judges sure know how to do what they're told....

I will not shed a tear for that man when he is strung up, but I might shed a tear for justice or the rule of law. The only thing missing from that courtroom was the kangaroo itself.

Charles, the trial was conducted in full accordance with all of the rules established at the beginning, with the supervision of American law professors, and with a good (50/50)balance of defense and prosecution witnesses. There was no kangaroo in that court. In fact, I had many appellate clients who would have been glad to receive the type of trial that Saddam received.

Two judges were replaced in midstream for being insufficiently anti-Saddam, I cannot imagine how it could have been anything BUT a kangaroo court.
