Oh, By The Way

Another couple of good questions for Scotty:

Q And one more, do you have any comment on Ramsey Clark joining Saddam Hussein's defense team?

MR. McCLELLAN: No, I think the -- Saddam Hussein is facing Iraqi justice for his crimes against humanity, and that's the way it should be. And there should be due process afforded to all leaders of the regime. And we've worked with the Iraqi special tribunal to set up a legal process and have assisted them from a technical standpoint. And this is an Iraqi justice system. And the Iraqi people -- Saddam Hussein and his regime leaders will face Iraqi justice.

Q So it doesn't bother you that there's an American over there defending Saddam Hussein?

MR. McCLELLAN: It's not something I've discussed with the President. I'll see if there's anything more.

It bothers me. Does it bother anyone else out there in the blogisphere?

It does seem weird. I know I often joke about it, but I still can't help but think they want to make sure Saddam Hussein does not start blabbing about his business with the Reagan/Bush government, with Halliburton, etc.

Ramsey Clark is vehemently opposed to the Iraq war. He is a founder of International ANSWER, is founder of VoteToImpeachBush http://www.impeachbush.org/, and is certainly not defending Saddam Hussein with the sanction of the Bush Administration.
