  • Rumsfeld called as witness

    The lawyer for Hussein is accusing the US of selling WMD to Saddam and is going to call Rumsfeld (the "travelling salesman for toxins and poisons") to testify in Saddam's trial with respect to Anthrax. Kissinger is also on the plate.

    He also told CBS that the USA will probably try to kill Saddam before the trial.

    This is going to be an interesting trial, heh.

The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding."

    I would not be surprised if more US officials are called. Maybe Americans will get to learn how we build dictators and support their atrocities through reckless foriegn policy............yeah like they're going to allow that.

        Probably right, but just imagine how entertaining it would be if the Whitehouse allowed it! It'd make the OJ Simpson trial look smalltime.

          You can invite a lot of people at that trial, from all the world. The important thing to know, it is how the Americans will control it. It wouldn't be surprising if in that trial the media obtained a lot of information about Russia, France or Germany, and quasi nothing about USA or Great Britain.

            Interesting, i think it will endup being an interesting event to follow and how the US chooses to handle it, tell the truth it will look bad, cover it up it will look bad, blame everyone else now that might just work. Depends how stupid Joe public is i guess.

              In fact I didn't well write my post, as I wanted that the first part, saying that not only Rumsfeld can be invited to the Saddam's trial but a lot of people in fact, was at least as long as the second part of the post .
