I’m assuming the former dictator sees his days are numbered and realized his defense attorney wouldn’t be sparing him the noose.
Saddam Lawyer Killed – The Corner @ NRO
One of Saddam Hussein’s lawyers was shot to death Wednesday after he was abducted from his home by men wearing police uniforms in Baghdad, court and police officials said.
Khamis al-Obeidi, who represented Saddam and his half brother Barzan Ibrahim in their eight-month-old trial, was abducted from his house at 7 a.m., said Saddam’s top lawyer, Khalil al-Dulaimi. His body was found shot to death on a street near the Shiite slum of Sadr City, police Lt. Thaer Mahmoud said.
It just all seems so…. Baghdad 1993. You know, the golden years when CNN covered up all of the Hussein-era atrocities so they could keep their digs in the Iraqi capital.
