Tuesday, November 18, 2008

Law professor Michael Newton gives us an insider’s perspective on the trial and execution of Saddam Hussein, and why it was difficult to give him a fair and unbiased judgment. He helped write the rules of the Iraqi High Tribunal for the trial. He’s also the co-author of Enemy of the State.
