Defending Saddam: EXTREMELY Bad for your health
I know attorneys are not always likeable. But, this is a little extreme.
One of Saddam Hussein's lawyers was abducted from his home and later found shot to death Wednesday, becoming the third member of the defence team killed since the former Iraqi leader's trial began eight months ago.When assassins want to hide their identities, they know how to do it. These guys wanted the world to know (or think) that the killers are the same ones doing all the so-called ethnic cleansing.
Khamis al-Obeidi, who represented Saddam and his half brother Barzan Ibrahim in the trial, was abducted at about 7 a.m. local time by men wearing police uniforms, court and police officials said.
He was shot dead and his body was later found on the street near Sadr City.
Unlike some of other members on the defence team, al-Obeidi continued to live in Baghdad during the trial, even after two other defence lawyers were killed.Hmmm . . .
"Whatever will be will be," he told Reuters last year.
"Que sera, sera,And now he's dead. Alfred Hitchock couldn't have come up with a scarier ending.
Whatever will be, will be;
The future's not ours to see.
Que sera, sera,
What will be, will be."
Saddam must be in panic mode.
