The UN said yesterday said that Saddam Hussein’s trial would never satisfy international standards because of ongoing violence and flaws in Iraq’s legal system.
From Ramsey Clark, former US Attorney General and part of Saddam’s legal team.
The complete demonization of Saddam Hussein threatens to determine every decision and action affecting not only his future but that of Iraq as well. With U.S. mass media and U.S. government propaganda stripping Saddam Hussein of every redeeming human quality, any act against him or Iraq is ipso facto justified.
This successful demonization made the U.S. unilateral war of aggression against Iraq politically possible. It now makes a fair trial for Saddam Hussein impossible.
So, basically, the UN and Ramsey Clark are saying the same thing, right? Those who bash Clark for working at Saddam’s trial apparently believe that only those they deem fit deserve a lawyer.
