Saddam Attorney Assassinated
Reuters reports that another attorney working for Saddam’s defense team was assassinated on Tuesday.
It is obvious that Saddam cannot be properly tried in Iraq under these circumstances.
It is not known who is behind the killings, but Saddam to put it lightly has a lot of enemies. It is also possible that the guerrilla movement sees a trial of him as a threat to their own hopes of taking over, and that the killings are by Saddams’ former supporters.
Some 9 Iraqis were killed in various incidents of guerrilla violence.
