BTW, I understand your skepticism, but, why kidnap a DEFENSE attorney? How would that help the powers that be? I could see it if they kidnapped the witness (although that witness may yet be one of the seven others), but I don't get the taking of a lawyer for the defense.
I'll hold my skepticism for now.

Shots: I can see it as a delay tactic, but couldn't the prosecution achieve the same effect by saying the mystery witness is still not "well" enough to leave the hospital and take the stand?
I'm still not convinced this is a prosecution move.

Here's a wild thought...
Suppose this defense attorney was devising a way to introduce testimony that Saddam didn't have WMDs?

It's wild, but with a team of 12 or so other lawyers, how would just one's dissapearance keep that from coming to light?
