Reality TV

The trial of Saddam Hussein will be shown live on TV.

The trial will show the Arab and Muslim world "that this is going to be a fair, just trial with a defence counsel in there, with a proper prosecuting counsel as well there," Iraqi national security adviser Muwaffaq Rubaie told CNN. "And everybody will watch this trial live on television."

  • Does anyone honestly believe that Hussein is getting anything other than a show trial? It demeans the whole idea of a fair trial to have a trial like this where the outcome has obviously already been determined.

  • Just because he was a brutal tyrant and obviously committed crimes against his people doesn't mean that he won't get a fair trial. Its just obvious from the evidence that he is guilty.
