But seriously, if I remember right and considering the man has virtually been proven right in all he said in those heady days leading to the war, the man was pretty intelligent.
I saw him live at the UN and I have to reluctantly admit he is way better than some of the idiots in the State Department I see running around trying to spin the badly mangled fiasco we have in Iraq right now.
If he was as bad as the Bush administration made him out to be, how come, at the very least , he's has not gone to trial or at the very most been hanged?
I'll be the first one to say: the man was damned impressive and whatever happens to him, he had the last laugh.
BAGHDAD - He was the international face of Saddam Husseinâs regime â defending Iraq and taunting the West for more than a decade. Now, Tariq Aziz awaits an Iraqi court as the latest member of the Saddamâs inner circle to face trial.
Aziz, 72, the only Christian among Saddamâs mostly Sunni Muslim coterie, and five other defendants face charges in the 1992 execution of dozens of merchants accused of profiteering.
The trial, scheduled to begin Tuesday, could represent the last high-profile Saddam-era figure to face prosecution for alleged atrocities.
