Saddam's Top Lawyer Quits
Saddam's top lawyer has quit, charging that the American lawyers on the team, inluding Ramsey Clark, want to control the defense and "soft-pedal" America's role in the occupation of Iraq. [via Huffington Post.]
Saddam's legal team includes 1,500 volunteers and at least 22 lead lawyers who come from several countries, including the United States, France, Jordan, Iraq and Libya. No date has been set for the trial of Saddam, captured by U.S. troops in December 2003.
