Note: not sure if theres already post on this so here goes.

Former US attorney-general Ramsey Clark is to join Saddam Hussein's defence team. Says court now is unfair and essentialy a farce.

Ziad Khasawna said on Wednesday that Clark, who held the office of attorney-general under US president Lyndon Johnson, had "honoured and inspired" the legal team by agreeing to help defend Saddam.

Clark said in the Jordanian capital Amman that his principle concern was protecting the former President's rights, who only saw a lawyer for the first time this month - a year after his capture.

"The special court in Iraq was created by the Iraqi governing council, which is nothing more than a creation of the US military occupation and has no authority in law as a criminal court," he said.

Haaaah, it is nice to see there are still good folks out there who are concerned with true justice and not just going with local mob mentality. Saddam is no doubt a monster, and guilty of war crimes,(no more than Bush) yet every monster deserves a fair trial. The bible says this.

If Osama or any other evil doer where caught do you really think they would get a fair trial if not killed on capture? Maby Saddam needs Robert Shapiro to represent him.
