Long story short, major news media is not being allowed to give you coverage of Saddam Hussein's trial. Moreover, the government is taking control of what you get to hear about it.
Unacceptable. We bombed the crap out of a country for this trial, and I want to know what transpires goddammit.
I was actually quite amused by the questions of the court's legitimacy that Hussein raised. In fact, his questions have merit. The government that's taking form certainly doesn't have public support. Unless you count suicide bombings a form of support. I strongly doubt that after we leave, the government will be able to stand on its own. Call me crazy.
However, by what right does this court try Hussein? Nominally, this is an Iraqi court. This court represents who? The Iraqi people? While they certainly want to try this man for his crimes, I don't think the majority of them have agreed to allow this court to do it for them.
Personally, I want to know what happened to a good old fashioned UN War Crimes Tribunal. If it was good enough at Nuremberg, it's good enough here.
