Saddam Hussein’s defense team walked out of the courtroom Monday shortly after the former leader’s trial resumed because the judge refused to allow former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark to challenge the tribunal’s legitimacy in an address to the court.
After the lawyers walked out, Saddam told the judge: “You are imposing lawyers on us. They are imposed lawyers. The court is imposed by itself. We reject that.”
Ramsey Clark had to impose his language on the Iraqi court, and rightfully, no one would listen to him. Is he that STUPID not to get an Arabic interpreter so that he could abide by their rules? Apparently, he is. And then again, he isn’t, because this is exactly what Saddam wanted to occur. Don’t be concerned with whether Saddam’s barristers will return; they are, no doubt, well-paid by Saddam’s stolen billions!
I have to hand it to Saddam. It took Slobodan
Misonofabitch Milosevic a lot longer to get to this point…and the prosecution hasn’t even rested its case. We’re in for one hell of a show!
