AP: Saddam Vows No Return to 'Unjust' Court---

BAGHDAD, Iraq - Saddam Hussein shouted Tuesday that he will not return "to an unjust court" when it convenes for a fifth session the following day. At the end of the session, when the judges decided to resume the trial Wednesday, Saddam suddenly shouted: "I will not return. I will not come to an unjust court! Go to hell!"

Saddam also complained that he had no fresh clothes and had been deprived of shower and exercise facilities. "This is terrorism," he said.

At that point, the audio was cut off to the media gallery and the curtain drawn so reporters could not tell what transpired afterward. It was not clear if the court would compel Saddam to attend. (emphasis added)
I daresay the Left would agree with Saddam's definition of terrorism. Those on the Left who actually shower (which would exclude the hippies), I mean. How dare he be allegedly deprived of fresh clothes. It's worse than depriving someone of his life without a fair and impartial trial . . . oh, wait, how many people did Saddam do that to?
