Guess Who's Saddam Hussein's New Lawyer!

Ramsey Clark!
Not really surprising since he had acting as the general counsel for the government of Iraq under Saddam Hussein.

But what I would like to know is, why isn't Ramsey Clark, at the very least, in jail?

I mean, there doesn't seem to be a rogue dictator hoodlum, terrorist or murderer that the man doesn't love, or love to defend!

For a brief bio by Michelle Malkin on all his lovely activities since being Lyndon Johnson's Attorney General, click here.

Among other things, Clark was a lawyer for the Vietnam Veterans Against The War, in which John Kerry was quite active:

Clark traveled to Hanoi, North Vietnam, from July 29 to August 12, 1972, under the sponsorship of the Stockholm-based International Commission for Inquiry, a Communist “peace” front. He was taken on a guided tour and denounced the U.S. bombing of North Vietnam. He also visited American POWs held by Hanoi, falsely declaring that they were in good health and their conditions “could not be better.” Such visits by American figures gave the communists the confidence to continue in the face of defeats on the battlefield.

More recently, Clark has been collaborating with the communist Workers World Party (WWP) in staging “anti-war” demonstrations against U.S. Iraq policy. Brian Becker, a member of the WWP secretariat, helped organize those protests and was the moderator of the Ramsey Clark press event on Haiti.

He also supported FBI killer Leonard Peltier:

Leonard Peltier is the symbol of the struggle. Outside of this country, he is outside of movie stars and maybe a few athletes, like Mohammed Ali, one of the best known Americans. And they see in him the struggle of our indigenous people, for their dignity, for their sovereignty, for their future. And they wonder how it is that he's been held so long?

I think I can explain beyond serious doubt, that Leonard Peltier has committed no crime whatsoever. But that if he had been guilty of firing a gun that killed a FBI Agent, it was in defense of not just his people but the integrity of humanity, from domination and exploitation.

And naturally, NPR thinks he's just grand.
