Saddam Absent at Trial

The fearless leader of Iraq did not come to court today. After assailing the trial as illegal, telling the Judge to "go to hell," and accusing his keepers of engaging in terrorism, (forcing him to remain in an unclean shirt and dirty underwear, don't you know,) Saddam had threatened yesterday to boycott the proceedings.

His empty chair today proved his bravery in the face of such mistreatment.

Of course, his attorneys are behind all of this grandstanding. The trial will continue with many fireworks as this is the defense strategy--and the empty chair is simply another way to add angst and doubt, and to prolong the proceedings.
