One thing is emerging from the sparse news about Saddam Hussein; he is adapting to the US justice system. Saddam is a survivor. He recently fired most of his lawyers. Sort of the same thing most criminals do in the US when buying time. He might hire more if needed.
Some think the American army should have just killed him when they found him in that spider hole, and some think that maybe Saddam will be with us for years, countering moves by his American puppet attorneys. He has only one charge against him at the present. Unless of course, the US tires of being embarrassed by his presence and simply pretends he died from whatever. Maybe they'll say he swallowed the WMDs.
He is playing the game, and indications are that he may become an expert at it.
No one ever doubted his intelligence, but perhaps George W. might have underestimated it.
