I do not see the point of this, the bastard is just fine and dandy, for God's sakes he's gettin better treatment than a vet would a rabit dog. It's like, "open ur mouf bitch, goooood booy" -- a f*ckin PR stunt.
When the hell is that trial? They better not just dump him into GT bay, I want that ass-monkey dead, I do not want that bastard on our soil!
The meaning of life is curiosity; we were put on this planet to explore opportunities.

The Red Cross has an internationally agreed mandate in which they can visit any prisoner of war. Most western countries adhere to this, many others do not. The US was pretty cautious about letting them get to Saddam this time due to the fact that there has been plenty of commentary to suggest Al Qaeda inflitration into Red Cross and many other organizations, and also due to the fact that the Red Cross gets un-supervised access to the prisoner. Therefore who knows what can be arranged or discussed during that time. The reason for it being un-supervised is to allow the prisoner to speak freely and without intimidation.
