As headlines for Saddam Hussein's trial continue to grace the front pages of American newspapers, the image of an Iraqi circus keeps appearing in my mind. All that is missing is a juggler and an elephant.The thought of one of Saddam Hussein's co-defendants being dragged out kicking and screaming didn't help. It made me wonder how much control the new judge had over his courtroom. Hussein's latest trick is his hunger strike in protest of the way he is being treated.
After taking approximately a month off, the trial is evidently as stressful as ever.
