“It Seems There Are Lots of Secrets”

From Holden:

Someone seems to think a public trial of Saddam Hussein is not such a great idea.

Iraq’s justice minister accused the United States on Tuesday of trying to hinder the Iraqi investigation of Saddam Hussein by limiting his access to interrogators, and said “it seems there are lots of secrets they want to hide.”


Shandal alleged that U.S. officials are trying to limit access to Saddam because they have their own secrets to protect, including funneling money and support to the Iraqi leader during his rule.

“It seems there are lots of secrets they want to hide,” Shandal said.

“There should be transparency and there should be frankness, but there are secrets that if revealed, won’t be in the interest of many countries,” he said. “Who was helping Saddam all those years?”
