For the second time, Saddam Hussein was assaulted in an Iraqi court.
While questioned about his military targeting of the shrines of the Shiite imams Hussein and Abbas when his regime was attempting to seize back control of Karbala, Saddam initially appeared or pretended not to understand what was being asked of him. Then he let loose an obscene word, which immediately had two court officials jumping on and assaulting him.
Like the first time, a fisticuff ensued. Th American military guards loitering nearby stood by idly and smiled while the Iraqis set upon each other.
Hmmm, sure as hell doesn’t give one confidence about the new Iraqi legal system.
Saddam Hussein in Court Fisticuffs!
