Don’t Let The Doorknob Hit Ya…

Where the good Lord split ‘ya:

The chief judge in Saddam Hussein’s genocide trial has been replaced, Al-Iraqiya state television reported Tuesday. The station did not say why the change was made, but the Arab satellite stations Al-Arabiya and Al-Jazeera said Judge Abdullah al-Amiri was replaced at the request of the Iraqi prime minister.
The name of the new judge was not reported. There was no immediate official confirmation that the judge had been replaced.
Prosecutors had asked for al-Amiri to be replaced after he allowed Saddam to lash out at Kurdish witnesses. And last week, al-Amiri stirred further controversy when he told the former president that “you were not a dictator.”

Of course, now we’ll probably have a ‘mistrial’ declared and have to do all this shi’ite over again.

    Another reason why the soldiers should have made sure that Saddam “fought to the death” in his spider hole.

  2. If I was the unfortunate Iraqi judge assigned to Hussein’s trial, I would said the same thing in order to get replaced, only I’d have done it a lot sooner. The fear of getting shot by extremists would’ve been too much for me.
