FOX Blog - Ten Feet From Saddam

Thursday, December 01, 2005

This is my first blog. Not my first blog from Baghdad. But I mean ever. Gosh...who would have thought I'd surrender!

But some things don't fit in every news story and I thought this would be a good way to talk about the trial of Saddam and being in Baghdad.

Keep it short...keep it short...(My blog, not the trial...but that too!)

This is my second time in court looking at Saddam from 10 feet away. I was here last month for the beginning of his trial. I learned a long time ago when I was a crime reporter that people — terrible people — never seem that sinister up close in a courtroom setting. They are kind of 'de-fanged.'

Saddam looks that way. Slow moving. Casual almost. Sort of disoriented sometimes. But suddenly there is that cold cool look from eyes that lock on you and you see the old Saddam is there — just as dangerous, just as unrepentant.

Read the rest as they say.
