Ramsey Clark, the terrorists’ lawyer, has an op-ed piece out today in the Houston Chronicle in defense of Saddam Hussein. Here’s a taste:
The United States, and the Bush administration in particular, engineered the demonization of Saddam, and it has a clear political interest in his conviction. Obviously, a fair trial of Saddam will be difficult to ensure — and critically important to the future of democracy in Iraq. This trial will write history, affect the course of violence around the world and have an impact on hopes for reconciliation within Iraq.
Saddam has been held illegally for more than a year without once meeting a family member, friend or lawyer of his choice. Although the world has seen him time and again on television — disheveled, apparently disoriented with someone prying deep into his mouth and later alone before some unseen judge — he has been cut off from all communications with the outside world and surrounded by the same U.S. military that mistreated prisoners at Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo Bay.
While Iraqis rejoice, Ramsey Clark weeps.
John Kerry pouts.
Feminists are AWOL.
What a day.
