News Has Saddams trial been televised yet?

  1. Jul 1, 2004 #1
    If you watch any of the news channels, they're all talking about Saddam's trial, showing clips of it, now there's someone reading running translations of highlights of the trial, but has the actual trial been televised? Does anyone know whether it will be televised or not?

    I saw a recording of Saddam talking with his judge. It was only about a 5 minute clip.

    CNN played the whole 30 minute hearing this afternoon. I think you can listen to it if you are registered at the CNN site. If not the transcript is linked below.

    From my understanding, it wasn’t a trial. It was just a preliminary hearing telling Saddam what he has been charged with.

    That and a bunch of arguing...

    LoL. True. But Saddam was right for not signing the document without a lawyer present.
