If Baghdad Bob Were a Lawyer

If Baghdad Bob Were a Lawyer

I imagine he would sound a lot like Saddam's chief lawyer, Khalil Dulaimi. In a letter to shrubya, he proclais "complete innocence" for his client and demands he be released, saying "His popularity gains by the day and (he) is beloved by millions of Iraqis."

The United States should free Saddam Hussein if it wants to end its problems in Iraq and earn the friendship of Arabs, the former Iraqi president's lawyer wrote in a letter to U.S. President George W. Bush.

The chief lawyer for Saddam at his trial for crimes against humanity in Baghdad told Bush that Iraqis who supported their former leader were waiting for a bold decision from the world's most powerful statesman to free him.

I have to hand it to him, though; his appeals to shrubya's vanity and delusions of grandeur are fantastic. He even goes so far as to suggest that freeing Saddam would make him the legend he yearns to be, securing his place of greatness in history.

Such a decision would prove to be the panacea that would end Washington's woes over Iraq, Dulaimi asserted.

"Your relations with Iraq will then be historic and you will win the favor of the Arabs and Muslims and the entire world," Dulaimi said.

Shall we take bets?
