Guess who's taking up the defense for Saddam. That's right, his best friend, a Frenchman. There's a shock. Jacques Verges, known for defending defending Nazi war criminal Klaus Barbie and guerrilla Carlos the Jackal, said that Saddam's nephew wrote him a letter and asked him to take up his uncles case. What will be Monsieur Verges defense? That it is our, the U.S.'s, fault. "We know very well that the Anglo-Americans armed Saddam Hussein, that the chemical weapons were sold by the allies," Verges said in a telephone interview. I'm guessing he's going to leave out the part where France was secretly helping him build a nuclear reactor. Monsieur Verges decried the treatment of Saddam since his capture. Saying he feared he would be killed before he could stand trial. This is another reason why the French are the scum of the world. If you're French and you're offended by this statement, too bad.
