    It's interesting that no one is willing to testify against SH and that so many are still being held with little or no indication of what their supposed crimes were.

    It'll be interesting to see what the interim government chooses to do with him. I think the US would have been better off bringing him to trial immediately. The guy is as crazy as a loon so I doubt that they got any valid information from him. Just another fiasco complements of gw & co.....

    no doubt we'll find that gw & co will find a way to "bend" the rules and keep saddam as long as they want. what's more, at least half of the us population will not object and will not see the potential danger in allowing the administration free reign. "it could never happen to me" :rolleyes: :(

    By the same GC arguments, then, all those in Guantanamo should also be released or charged. Not that we didn't know that already.

    Apparently the Red Cross doesn't mind and completly ignores the hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians who were tortured and died under Saddam's regime. The thousands gassed by his hands. But none of that matters, bad ol US of A has him in custody shame on them.

    Just now reported on FOX news.
    Pallestinian terrorists attack Israelites. When they took off to escape they all hopped into the back of a UN Red Cross van driven by a UN employee. All of it was caught on tape by Reuters. I'm waiting for ABC, CBS, NBC, PMSNBC, CNN, to report on this BIG news. Since I don't watch them I can't say for sure they aren't reporting it but I wouldn't be surprised. Too new for it to be on the internet yet I guess for Drudge hasn't reported either.

    I'm not going to count on Red Cross being fair or balanced.

    In all fairness, what should the US do at this point? I certainly think they should abide by International Law (for once), but what are their options? What can the US charge him with, since I do not know if there is any US law applicable to a foreign national...would we release him to the ICC?, an organization we refuse to let ourselves be responsible to...do we give hime back to Iraq? I could see alot of security and morale problems with that one...and I do not know if the Iraqi provisional government and/or constitution has the legal provisions for dealing with him effectively...I say go the ICC route...any comments?

    i thought the plan was to turn him over to the iraqis. since we won't go to the icc (which is what we should do) they're the next best option.

    Christ, it shouldn't be hard to charge that bastard with something. Saddam I mean, not Bush. He certainly committed enough atrocities.

    I would have thought that the US would have loved to get rid of Saddam, without a trial that might embarrass the memory of Reagan.

    Reagan being the Pres who supported Saddam and gave him all those nasty biological weapons and military support.

    They played the tape on TV with the Pallestinian gun men piling into the back of the van clearly marked as UN with a Red Cross next to it. So how come nobody else reported it?

    Well, it looks like SH will be given back to the Iraqis. It will be interesting to see the outcome of this.

    Since his crimes were against the Iraqi people, it makes sense. Yes?

    I have every confidence that the Bush administration has thought this all through and it will all work out just fine.
