Ramsey Clarke, Defender of Thugs!
Ramsey Clarke, former Attorney General of the United States has joined the Saddam Hussein Defense team according to Aljazeera. Mr. Clarke noted that the US should be tried as well. Why am I not surprised?
Now, I have no problem with Saddam having the best possible defense that he can get. I have no problem if the courts decide he is innocent (fat chance though that may be) and let him go. I have no problem with Mr. Clarke taking on clients, I only wonder why he takes on the most thuggish dictators as clients if and only if they have an anti-US mien.
There will be those who will disagree with me, and that is OK, they have every right to be totally, unmitigatedly, absolutely wrong.
