HUSSEIN COULD BE ONLY HOURS AWAY FROM DEATH!

IS HE GETTING WHAT HE DESERVES OR WAS THIS A MISTAKE BY THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION?

Lawyers for Saddam Hussein on Friday made a last-minute appeal to an American court to avert execution in Iraq, asking a judge to block his transfer from U.S. custody to the hands
of Iraqi officials. Hussein’s lawyers filed documents Friday afternoon asking for an
emergency restraining order aimed at stopping the U.S. government from relinquishing custody of the condemned former Iraqi leader to Iraqi officials, a spokeswoman for a federal court in Washington D.C. said. The documents were being processed and were not immediately made public. The Justice Department had not yet responded to the request. A similar request by the former chief justice of the Revolutionary Court, Awad Hamed al-Bandar, was denied Thursday and is under appeal. Al-Bandar also faces execution. The Justice Department argued in that case that U.S. courts have no jurisdiction to interfere with the judicial process of another country. Al-Bandar argued that his trial violated his rights under the U.S. Constitution but Justice countered that foreigners being tried in foreign courts are not protected by the U.S. Constitution. The appeals court did not indicate when it would rule on the issue.
