Just asking: If the decision to announce Saddam Hussein's verdict and sentence was really made solely by the five-judge tribunal that heard his case, why is it that the announcement was made before the judges' written explanation for their verdict was even ready?
Another question about the timing of Saddam's sentencing
If U.S. politics weren't a factor, why was the announcement made before the tribunal was ready with its explanation?
