ZEALOUS ADVOCACY, MY ASS
But, this story about the third member of Saddam's defense team to be killed in eight months, makes me ask, "Wasn't he removed from power? No one has to work on his behalf anymore."
Maybe I'm crazy, but I'd think that "Member of Saddam Hussein's Defense Team" has to be the least desirable job on earth. Maybe it's number two to "Osama Bin Laden's Top Lieutenant."
And that's before factoring in the "attorney" part of the job.
So next time Saddam asks one of Iraq's finest trial lawyers to take on his defense, the fella might want to tell him he's doing a slip-and-fall case that day.
