Evidence has been introduced at Saddam Hussein's trial showing that Saddam personally ordered the deaths by hanging of 148 men and women living in Dujail -- without trial -- as retribution for an assassination attempt on his life. Captain's Quarters has more.
Well, there goes the last excuse for mainstream media eyebrow-raising about Saddam Hussein's trial. One of the complaints from the first days of the trial was that the evidence didn't show Hussein's direct involvement in the deaths. Now, it does.
By having a trial at all, Saddam Hussein has been afforded far more justice than he provided to any of his victims.
