"Your are being tried in a criminal case. Stop your political speech," Abdel-Rahman said angrily.

"Had it not been for politics I wouldn't be here," Saddam replied.

He went on with his speech, urging Iraqis not fight each other.

"What happened in the last days is bad," he said, referring to the recent violence. "You will live in darkness and rivers of blood for no reason."

He praised the insurgency, saying, "In my eyes, you are the resistance to the American invasion."

Finally, Abdel-Rahman ordered the session closed to the public, ordering journalists to leave the viewing chamber.

Saddam was hardly going to be meek during his defence. Unsurprisingly this hearing has been adjorned again.....if they keep this up he, like Milosovic will never get to the end of the trial.
