Preempting Wing-nut Fury

Right-wing types were none too happy when the Lancet Mortality Survey was published one month prior to the upcoming US elections. I’m confident that they will be equally as furious at what seems a blatant attempt to influence the elections, with the rescheduling of Saddam Hussein’s trial verdict to November 5, right before voting.

Meanwhile, a senior court official said a verdict against Saddam Hussein and seven co-defendants charged with crimes against humanity in connection with an anti-Shiite crackdown in the 1980s will be announced Nov. 5.
