Never one to miss an opportunity to put on a show, Saddam Hussein and his lawyers stormed out of the courtroom today after Saddam's half-brother Barzan al-Tikriti (the former intelligence chief) was ejected from court. The judge carried on the trial without Saddam. This is looking more like a really bad TV show (two of Saddam's lawyers have been murdered since the beginning of the trial) than an actual trial. It's time to get Judge Judy on the case! Judge Judy versus Saddam Hussein. My money's on Judge Judy.
