He must have been well-taken care of. He used to be pudgy. Now he looks fit.

In this file image cleared by the US military, Saddam Hussein appears in a courtroom at Camp Victory, a former Saddam palace on the outskirts of Baghdad, July 1, 2004. Saddam Hussein could face up to 500 charges when he has his day in court, but will be tried on 12 well-documented counts because prosecuting him for all his crimes would be a 'waste of time,' the prime minister's spokesman said Sunday, June 5, 2005.

I'll bet they want to narrow the charges - one of the major problems with bringing Saddam to trial is that a carefully examination pf his regime's history would reveal a lot of very embarrassing material about its relationship with Western governments, including both Democratic and Republican administrations in the US; there are a dozen governments and hundreds if not thousands of businesses and individuals who have a vested interest is seeing that he's tried and convicted for a narrow subset of the crimes he committed - and that he takes the rest of his secrets to the grave.
