Ramsey's tears for Saddam

HT from Blogs of War on the former Attorney General Ramsey Clark's comments on Saddam's execution. The Wiki on Clark lists his former clients (Nazis, Terrorists, etc):
As a lawyer, he has also provided legal counsel and advice to controversial figures, including:

* Nazi concentration camp commandant Karl Linnas
* Nazi War criminal Jack Reimer, charged in the killings of Jews in Warsaw.
* The National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws Advisory Board during late 1970s and early 1980s
* Branch Davidian leader David Koresh
* Antiwar activist Father Philip Berrigan
* Political figure Lyndon Larouche
* American Indian prisoner Leonard Peltier
* Crimes of America conference in Tehran in 1980
* Liberian political figure Charles G. Taylor during his 1985 fight against extradition from the United States to Liberia
* Elizaphan Ntakirutimana, a leader in the Rwandan genocide
* PLO leaders in a lawsuit brought by the family of Leon Klinghoffer.
* Camilo Mejia, a US soldier who deserted his post in March 2004 in protest against the US war against Iraq.
* Radovan Karadžić, accused Yugoslav war criminal.
* Slobodan Milošević, former president of Yugoslavia, accused war criminal
* Saddam Hussein, former president of Iraq and convicted war criminal
* Lori Berenson

Here is a good article from Emperors New Clothes titled, "How Ramsey Clark Championed
Baltic Nazi War Criminals"...and he's still doing it. (By Jared Israel and Nico Varkevisser)
