Outbursts Dominate Hussein Proceeding

Saddam Hussein and his co-defendants railed against the White House, accusing the Bush administration Thursday of lying in the run-up to the 2003 invasion of Iraq. They elaborated on their earlier allegations, denied by U.S. officials and an Iraqi judge, of physical abuse suffered in U.S. custody. And they accused court officials of undermining justice and democracy by preventing their outbursts from being aired on television. Scattered among the frequent and lengthy monologues, as the trial of Hussein and seven others continued here, was testimony from three more witnesses about horrific violence they said was inflicted upon the people of Dujail, a town north of Baghdad, after a failed attempt to assassinate Hussein there in 1982. Allegedly, more than 140 residents were killed.Full Story
