I hope you've had the chance to follow the Saddam trial (another Iraq blip, I know...). It's more entertaining to me than the Michael Jackson/OJ/Flava of Love trainwreck rolled up together.
Snippet of the latest insanity that happened in court...
In the opening moments of the proceedings, which had been delayed five days while two new judges were seated, Rahman told the court that "political speeches" would not be tolerated. Hassan, Hussein's half brother and former chief of intelligence, began to challenge the court's legitimacy, calling it the "daughter of a whore."
"I will not allow you to insult this court," Abdel-Rahman said.
After an exchange, Hassan was dragged from the courtroom. Several defense team lawyers stood, and one attorney began screaming at Abdel-Rahman
The judge had the attorney removed from the court, leading the rest of the defense team to say they were leaving.
Hussein protested after Abdel-Rahman brought court-appointed defense attorneys in. "I don't want these lawyers, and if they insist on staying here, they are evil," he said.
Abdel-Rahman told Hussein he could leave, but if he did not, he would be thrown out.
Hussein walked out.
Seriously, this trial is turning into a fucking 3 ring circus with people being dragged out, the court being called a Whore's Daughter, everyone walking out...It's ridiculous.
God only knows what tomorrow will bring...
