Achieving Justice for Saddam Hussein

Hosted by
Saddam Hussein is now in the legal custody of Iraq-s new government, although US forces will have physical control for the foreseeable future. He-s scheduled to be formally charged tomorrow. To prove genocide, torture and mass executions, there are 30 tons of documentary evidence-and tens of thousands of potential witnesses. Yet, despite Prime Minister Iyad Allawi's vow "that it will be a just trial and a fair trial, unlike the trials that he inflicted on his enemies on the Iraqi people,- with new leaders really in charge, can Saddam get a fair trial in an Iraqi court? Warren Olney looks at the obstacles facing a new government with limited power and a restive population. How much will politics get in the way? What about security? Is this a case for the International Court at The Hague?
