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.
true. his trial is going to be a mess.
what I do not understand, is why they can't take some of these "deck of cards" leaders, like Chemical Ali, and put them on the "rocket docket" - trial, conviction, appeal, execution - all within a 2 week time period. play the tape of the execution 24x7 in the prison where the others are held, try and soften them up.
what is the point of dragging this out?
