Comic Relief from Baghdad

The chief judge in the trial of Saddam Hussein says that Saddam was “no dictator.”

This is hilarious. The Bush administration helps arrange a show trial. And they can’t even get the story line straight in a kangaroo court.

The chief prosecutor complained that the judge has allowed “defendants to go too far, with unacceptable expressions and words.”

One presumes that the Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld will make sure the same problem doesn’t happen with the pending tribunals at Guantanamo.

Maybe Bush can arrange to have the same judge in case he is ever put on trial.
