Saddam Verdict

The Saddam verdict is "scheduled" to come out on Sunday. Does anyone else see this as a cynical ploy by the administration to dominate the pre-election news cycles with positive news from Iraq? Or am I just being a cynical conspiracy nut? Or is Clinton somehow involved?

Re: Saddam Verdict

The whole trial has been a kangaroo court from the start. They might as well have lined him up in front of te firing squad on Day 1 and have been done with it.

That just wouldn't have been fair. Even maniacal murderous dictators are entitled to their due process rights of a fair hearing and an opportunity to be heard.

Re: Saddam Verdict

When's our trial for starting a war based on lies and killing their people without just cause?

Of course not. It's just a coincidence.

Re: Saddam Verdict

I heard some statistic that the annual deaths of Iraqies per year in their country has doubled since our invasion, as compared to under rule by Saddam. But we're innocent, of course.

Re: Saddam Verdict

I think his punishment should be taking over and running the country again.

Re: Saddam Verdict

I believe Saddam's lawyer brought this point up about a week ago. With Karl running Amerika, it seems that knowing about this timing is less important than the effects it will have on the election.
