I've Been Thinking:
Saddam Hussein's trial resumed yesterday in Baghdad.
It was the trial accusing him of the gassing of 15,000 Kurds.
The first order of the court was to dismiss charges against Saddam.
And why not, after all, Saddam Hussein was executed on December 30th.
With Saddam Hussein out of the picture, first physically and now legally, it's a whole different case - the power, the punch, the kick are gone.
Saddam Hussein issued an order to gas a major percentage of the population of his country - and now he is no longer accountable for that act of brutality.
His slate had been wiped clean.
Now the case continues against Saddam's cousin Chemical Ali and 6 other men.
Now the case is simply about ultimate bureaucrats taking orders and doing what they are told.
Now the co-defendants now have the perfect defense, they were simply obeying orders.
History is being whitewashed.
