Saddam's half-brother testifies

Where's that circus music coming from?

The trial of Saddam Hussein and seven co-defendants resumed in Baghdad on Wednesday, with the ousted Iraqi leader's half-brother denying he had made arrests in a village where Saddam escaped assassination in 1982.

This is so stupid. If Saddam is found innocent, what do we do about the fact we killed both his sons? Does Hallmark make a "Sorry we blew up your heirs" card?

"I arrested no one; it was the security services that were in charge," Barzan al-Tikriti, former head of the secret service, testified before the Iraqi High Tribunal.

It was the security service, I was in charge of the SECRET service...stupid.

Barzan, the seventh defendant to testify on charges of killing 140 Shi'ites in the village of Dujail, said he only visited the village twice, on the day of the assassination attempt and the following day.

Well, why would he visit after the chemical attack? I wouldn't visit the family of someone I murdered. It's just awkward.
