That's my question too. I searched for it last week and I just found his letter from the prison.

Good question, oldunion. Here is a link to the latest BBC online news article I could find: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/4180372.stm - it's about a week old, though (24 August) and doesn't say much, just that
Saddam Hussein's trial is expected to take place within two months, although though no date has been set.

Think he will replace Rumsfeld at defense. They have similar visions, but Rummy is now considered a softie :-)

They need him to work out a strategy against Iran.

He is held in a US military camp, though he was officially handed over to the Iraqis and is currently standing trial [edit]in an Iraqi court[/edit]. He was already convicted of several crimes.

I hope his court wouldn't last forever!

And who is going to pick up his tab.

There has been a lot of discussion of debt forgiveness for Iraq, but there have also been some interesting, almost forbidden, topics in the debate. Perhaps the least mentioned issue is the reparations of US$200 billion that Iraq allegedly owes, mostly to Kuwait and Saudi Arabia, from the first Gulf War of 1991.

yes...one would wonder why there has been nearly zero news coverage on the subject.

Because no interesting changes have occured recently. It really wouldn't be news to put "Saddam is still awaiting trial" in the paper every day.

In all seriousness, what I believe is occuring right now is that the prosecution is preparing their case. Since we're talking about criminal charges against a head of state, it's going to take a very long time to prepare the case.

Remember the various CEO's that were arrested for various wrongdoings? The media was insane when they were arrested but things went completely quiet for months and sometimes years because it was taking a loooooooooooooooooong time to prepare the entire case.

It seems that nobody is interested in Saddam's court. As you see we're talking about everything but him!
