By Sher Zieve – In a recent interview by CNN’s Wolf Blitzer of Saddam Hussein attorney and former US Attorney General Ramsey Clark, Clark said that the Hussein trial is being “illegally conducted”. Clark further said that the war was and is “unjust”, a phrase now being used by his client, and that the US had “no right to invade Iraq”.
When Blitzer asked him “Should Bush be placed on trial?”, Clark responded that the Iraq "invasion" was an “illegal war” and that there is “no doubt” that it reaches the level of “high crimes and misdemeanors”.
Clark has been repeatedly involved in the support of those opposed to the US and US policy, for many years. (TCV)
Then of course, there is the accusation that the witnesses are lying about torture and abuse because they are suing for damages and hope to get a better settlement by embellishing their stories.
"I've never seen it before where both of these witnesses, what they call plaintiffs, are suing for damages, in a case where people's lives are at stake," Clark said.
"That means they will testify for bigger judgment for themselves," he said. "They have a personal monetary motive in making it seem this was a terrible thing and they lost a lot of money."
Clark said it would be "very, very difficult" for the proceedings to be fair.
"The court was chaotic half the time," he said. "Two or three people speaking at once. It was highly divisive when it ought to have a healing effect. But the only way to have a healing effect is to be fair, and you don't get that sense. Certainly the defense doesn't."
The judges "seem to be determined not to hear any of our arguments," Clark said. "They wanted to rush to judgment." (CNN)
How can the judges rush to judgment? Every time something is said that Saddam doesn't like he starts bellowing at the judges. Saddam is an evil, evil man and he has an equally evil US attorney. It sickens me that Ramsey Clark was a prominent member of our government and that he is still free...he should be imprisoned for treason! Especially when he says something like this...
"We [will] win it 100 percent," he said. "Because as everybody has heard, there is not even one piece of evidence being brought up, either written or oral, really condemning Mr. Saddam or his colleagues."
