A November Surprise
A verdict against Saddam Hussein and seven co-defendants charged with crimes against humanity in connection with an anti-Shiite crackdown in the 1980s will be announced Nov. 5, a senior court official said on Monday.Interesting timing, no?
For Rove's sake, I hope this isn't the October Surprise he's been sinisterly hinting at. The only surprise would be if Saddam is found not guilty.
Now all the judge has to do is stay alive for the next three weeks.
