Saddam to be the November surprise
Umm, so, it looks like Saddam Hussein's trial is scheduled to end on November 5 -- otherwise known as two days before Election Day. Not only will the verdict come in on that Sunday, but sentencing will be handed down that day as well.
If I'm Saddam, I'm shitting bullets. Unless of course he's insane enough to believe that the Bush Admin had nothing to do with this auspicious timing.
Or, auspicious re-timing, as the case may be:
That trial adjourned July 27 to allow its five-judge panel to consider a verdict. The court was to have reconvened Monday to hear a verdict.
"The Dujail trial will resume Nov. 5 when the presiding judge will announce the verdict and the sentencing," Juhi said.
