I was reading this report on the welcome conviction of Tariq Aziz, for many years the public face of Saddam Hussein’s Iraqi regime, who has been jailed for 15 years for his role in the execution of 42 merchants. If you read through the report, however, you get to the pay off lines…”Saddam Hussein himself was hanged in December 2006 in a separate case. Human Rights Watch issued a report into the trial of Saddam Hussein, concluding that the process was flawed and its verdict unsound because of “serious administrative, procedural and substantive legal defects”. There you go, poor Saddam. His only crime was, erm, genocide but hey. the shills in the BBC use a biased Human Rights Watch report to convey the impression that Saddam was a victim.
