The Second Most Dangerous Job In The World

Saddam Hussein has stated his repeated discontent with the ongoing trial in which he faces charges for killing more than 140 Shiites during a crackdown after an attempt on the former Iraqi leader's life in Dujail in 1982. Let's face it, the entire world knows he's guilty ... but at least he is getting a fair trial in which he can also possibly be acquitted of all charges, but that's for the jury to sort out. But at the rate he's going, Saddam might just be better off going for a mistrial. Recently, Hussein's lead attorney Khamees al-Ubaidi's bullet riddled body was found in a Shia neighborhood near the Sadr City section of Baghdad bringing the tally of bumped off defense attorneys to three since the beginning of the trial. Jeez ... all O.J. Simpson had to do to get away with murder was hire an expensive criminal defence lawyer who could at the drop of a hat conjure up silly rhymes about evidence like "If it doesn't fit, you must acquit." Poor Saddam must feel like an honorary member of the lawyer of the month club by now.
