As everyone knows it took us one year to capture Saddam Hussein, now one year after his capture, Saddam Hussein Has Finally Been Allowed To See His
Lawyers for the First Time. This is a breaking news story and updates are already starting to come in. I did note though that there is no actual
mention of the camp name where he is being held. We all know someone stated the name of the camp yesterday where he is being held, yet today the
media is not giving the camp name out. Is there perhaps a conspiracy by the news media now to hide where he is?
BAGHDAD, Dec 16 (AFP) - Preparations to put Saddam Hussein on trial intensified Thursday with a first meeting between the ousted Iraqi president and
a member of the defence team appointed by his family.
But even as the special tribunal set up to prosecute his regime confirmed it was poised to begin hearings, a senior official revealed that Saddam
himself would be the last to be hauled into the dock.
Defence counsel said the Iraqi leader had appeared well during the four-hour interview, granted nearly a year after his capture by US troops in a
hideout near his hometown of Tikrit, north of Baghdad.

Now that the legal process has "Started" I am wondering how long others think this trial will go on? Do You think a fair trial can be held if the
court is an all Iraqi court? Or Do you think he should not be put on trail in his own country?
There is also an alternative, do you think the trial should be moved from Iraq to Turkey, Iran, Afganistan. Please keep in mind, this is probably
going to be the trial of the century. What are your thoughts on this trial?
