"The 11 senior aides currently in custody were being held together and were able to see each other for three hours a day but Saddam himself was being held separately, Izzat said."

So is this fear or arrogance in Tariq-Aziz?

If he is of no use, hang him now and don't waste anymore time or effort on him.

I remember reading Hermann Göring refused to say anything negative of Hitler at the Nürnberg trials. And look how he ended up...

Fine. Take 'em both out back, kneel 'em down and shoot 'em in the back of the head. NOW.

Could be neither fear nor arrogance. Could be just simple
posturing - for the best deal.

Tariq is a survivor.

While Saddam is alive, he cannot take the chance of testifying-and neither will anyone else.

We should have killed him when we had the chance.

We're going to lose this fight because we can't not play by the rules.

Under Islamic Honorable Terrorist Sharia Law, Tariq Aziz refuses to testify against Saddam: Honorable Sharia Law lawyer

....Hmmmmm.....sounds like Islamic-U.N. privilege....NO REAL JUSTICE AFTER ALL......

?......Islamic Honorable Sharia Law = 'WMD'.....?

Perhaps it is neither. I would choose the term loyalty. Aziz has little to gain by providing direct testimony against Saddam, especially when the fact is leaked. Certain benefits may accrue to his relatives, including life. It is reasonable to think that his relatives may be spared if he doesn't testify.

Having said that, he may have and probably did secure favorable treatment for his family by providing his captors with other factual assistance in secret.

This is a case of having it both ways and achieving limited objectives by playing both side.

There are plenty of others to provide the devistating testimony to do Saddam in.
