Why Ramsey Clark?

Today we watched a very long trial for Saddam Hussein and his gang on the TV and I'm not trying to tell you what happened in the trial. There is something else that I want to write about and that is the presence of the former American justice minister Ramsey Clark in the court to defend Saddam Hussein.
I know that every defendant should have an attorney but it's really confusing why a respectable man like Ramsey would defend a criminal like Saddam?
Saddam is not a regular prisoner because if we ignored the details of what he have done the fact remain that through his acts and during his reign we and our neighbors lost about 2 millions of our people!
I'm sure that Ramsey is fully aware of what I'm talking about and he knows well that the man hands are full of blood and from every type so why would Ramsey defend him?
I cant imagine that he is looking for publicity or want to get more famous or he believe in any way that Saddam is innocent and he needs to prove that, then why? I really don’t have any kind of answer to this question.
And the bigger surprise that he inside the court accused the court of being illegitimate! We have an elected government (that most of the Arab countries and the third world don’t have) and this elected and legitimate government had appointed the court so why it's not legitimate in your opinion Mr. Ramsey Clark?!

Why you are there? I still don’t know but let me tell you that you won't gain the respect of the world by defending a tyrant but you will be hated by millions of the Iraqis and the Kuwaitis and the Iranians and the Americans who lost their beloved in the wars the dictator made.
And this trial will be like a stain you won't be able to erase from your history. One day we will remember and we will tell our children about the Americans who librated Iraq and your name wont be among them.

The problem is that Ramsey Clark is no longer a "respectable man" and hasn't been one for many years. He is a left-wing America-hating lunatic.

"And this trial will be like a stain you won't be able to erase from your history."

It will just one of many stains. He has done things like this before. He defended Slobodan Milosevic also. And an participant in the Rwanda massacres. And countless other murderers and despots.

He's making a fool of himself and everyone knows it except him.

Sooni, your words go to the heart of the matter. Lisa is right - an America-hating lunatic. And, as we all know, there are others.

But most of us are so powerfully drawn to Iraqis' determination to right wrongs and establish your own place in the political world. We wish you all the very best.

In the USA, we believe that even the worst criminals deserve fair trials with competent lawyers serving the defendents.
This is honorable work--even if everyone "knows" that the defendent is guilty.
I question whether or not Ramsey Clark is, in fact, a competent attorney. His beliefs are so crazy that I am not sure he would help or hurt his client's case.

Personally, I think Saddam should also be tried for simpler crimes like corruption and embezzlement, etc. That would send a powerful message about how Iraqis want their future government to be honest and corruption-free.

the u.s. president (i forget his name)that appointed mr. clark said that it was the worst mistake he made in his presidency. maybe he really thinks saddam isnt a bad guy, but i think that he just wants to look important...when in reality he is coming off very dumb.

There is a sort of wierd leftist in the world that never met a dictator it didn't like, no matter how evil, as long as the guy is anti-American. Ramsey Clark is one of them.

Here's my 10 step plan on how to be a dictator of the sort that Ramsey Clark likes...

What everybody said here is right. The extreme whack-job left (and the extreme whack-job right) in America have freedom because we have freedom of speech and freedom of press. So cocroaches like this are allowed to spout their drivel and move about freely. That is what freedom means.

But he is a great embarassment to 95 out of 100% Americans--among those who know who he is anyway. Most Americans don't even know him because he is too obscure, stupid, and meaningless to matter. Have no doubt about it.

But you do have my apologies as an American that this man is polluting your country with his presence.

Pres. Johnson appointed Clark. We Americans don't appreciate it but what Clark is doing is giving a sense of fairness to this trial to the "world at large." Nothing he says or does will make any difference to the outcome but it will "look" like someone is looking out for SH's rights. And that's what this trial is all about, oddly enough, that SH has the "right" to a fair trial. The butcher who never gave anyone the same gets a fair trial to prove to the world that this is the New Iraq. It's all a sham and Clark's a bottom feeder, but in the end he won't matter at all.

He defended PLO terrorists who murdered an old Jewish American by shooting him and tossing his wheelchair into the sea from the Achille Lauro- Ramzi Clark is an evil man...

The fact that Ramsey Clark is defending a tyrant in court is not an issue -- it's proper that every criminal is allowed attorneys.

Now, as for why Ramsey Clark would seek out such a job, that's simple: He hates America and uses every opportunity to express that hatred (which, as an American, is something he has the freedom to do).

Where Mr Clark crosses the line is when he makes statements that question the legitimacy of the court you Iraqis have created. As someone who is not a citizen of Iraq, he is a guest of the Iraqis. Guests are not free to insult their hosts.

I totaly agree with the writer, it's a confusing thing that a man with a good reputation try to destroy his famous political life in a losing case like saddam's case, what's the idea behind putting your self in a position like that defending a criminal like Saddam who's responsible for the death of thousands of people without even letting them to have a fair trials like the one he is in right now.
I think the people that Saddam killed deserves more respect from those who are trying to defend that slayer .
Actually it's really confusing but may be in the next days we will hear the new that Ramsy clark has recieved ?$ dollars from Saddam like Gorge Galawi scandle.

Who knows ???????!!!!!!!!

Ramsey's been to bed with at least one two-bit dictator in every continent (Yes, even Bubbles XIII, the Evil Emperor Penguin Emperor of Antarctica). That was a joke, and so is Ramsey Clark.

I thik you actually have to kill at least a hundred (100) innocents for Ramsey to work on your case - I'll have to check his legal profile.

Re-read the posts here. Clark does NOT have a good reputation. His "alleged" good reputation, is just that...alleged. He is a scum sucking bottom feeder and has been a traitor to America for 35 years.

bah, Clark is an attention whore, period. And a major embarrassment to his country. Saddam will still be found guilty and executed so who cares.

Clark is an idiot but since America is a free country he is free to be an idiot. Don't worry He is not a good attorney!

Sooni, it appears that all the American bloggers above have the correct view of Ramsey Clark. He is a useless, two-bit lawyer and a disgrace to this country. Cheers, and good luck.

I have no love for Ramsey, but he plays a necessary role in the grand scheme, crazy as he may seem. If we as a "world community" are to expect fairness and justice, then we must hold ourselves to these standards as well, no matter how great a crime has been perpetrated against any one of us. Saddam must receive a fair trial if we are to keep in line with our own standards. While it seems sickening that he should be afforded the rights he denied to the millions he and his regime have killed, we have no alternative if we are to retain the moral high ground. Ramsey is a person who seems obsessed with this principle (possibly to a fault), but watchdogs like him are necessary to remind us how far our own shadow can fall.

$200 Bucks It Is...
A guy goes over to his friend's house, rings the bell, and the wife answers.

" Hi, is Tony home?"

" No, he went to the store."

"Well, you mind if I wait?"

" No, come in."
They sit down and the friend says "You know Nora, you have the greatest breasts I have ever seen. I'd give you a hundred bucks if I could just see one."

Nora thinks about this for a second and figures what the hell - a hundred bucks. She opens her robe and shows one. He promptly thanks her and throws a hundred bucks on the table.

They sit there a while longer and Chris says "They are so beautiful I've got to see the both of them. I'll give you another hundred bucks if I could just see the both of them together."

Nora thinks about this and thinks what the hell, opens her robe, and gives Chris a nice long look. Chris thanks her, throws another hundred bucks on the table, and then says he can't wait any longer and leaves.

A while later Tony arrives home and his wife says "You know, your weird friend Chris came over. "

Tony thinks about this for a second and says "Well did he drop off the 200 bucks he owes me?"

Hello. Prompt how to get acquainted with the girl it to me to like. But does not know about it
I have read through one history
Each of you has your personal story; it is your history. Keeping a diary or writing your feelings in a special notebook is a wonderful way to learn how to think and write about who you are -- to develop your own identity and voice.

People of all ages are able to do this[url=""].[/url] Your own history is special because of your circumstances: your cultural, racial, religious or ethnic background. Your story is also part of human history, a part of the story of the dignity and worth of all human beings. By putting opinions and thoughts into words, you, too, can give voice to your inner self and strivings.

A long entry by Anne Frank on April 5, 1944, written after more than a year and a half of hiding from the Nazis[url=""],[/url] describes the range of emotions 14-year-old Anne is experiencing:

". . . but the moment I was alone I knew I was going to cry my eyes out[url=""].[/url] I slid to the floor in my nightgown and began by saying my prayers, very fervently. Then I drew my knees to my chest[url=""],[/url] lay my head on my arms and cried, all huddled up on the bare floor[url=""].[/url] A loud sob brought me back down to earth, and I choked back my tears, since I didn't want anyone next door to hear me . . .

"And now it's really over[url=""].[/url] I finally realized that I must do my school work to keep from being ignorant, to get on in life, to become a journalist, because that's what I want! I know I can write[url=""].[/url] A few of my stories are good, my descriptions of the Secret Annex are humorous, much of my diary is vivid and alive, but . . . it remains to be seen whether I really have talent . . .

"When I write I can shake off all my cares. My sorrow disappears, my spirits are revived! But, and that's a big question, will I ever be able to write something great, will I ever become a journalist or a writer? I hope so, oh, I hope so very much, because writing allows me to record everything, all my thoughts, ideals and fantasies.

"I haven't worked on Cady's Life for ages. In my mind I've worked out exactly what happens next, but the story doesn't seem to be coming along very well. I might never finish it, and it'll wind up in the wastepaper basket or the stove. That's a horrible thought, but then I say to myself, "At the age of 14 and with so little experience, you can't write about philosophy.' So onward and upward, with renewed spirits. It'll all work out, because I'm determined to write! Yours, Anne M. Frank

For those of you interested in reading some of Anne Frank's first stories and essays, including a version of Cady's Life, see Tales From the Secret Annex (Doubleday, 1996). Next: Reviewing and revising your writing
