AP- J. Halaby; Letter, Jordan-06
"It was only a few times that I managed to address you through the farcical, so-called trial when the microphones were not switched off," Saddam said, acknowledging that he tries to use the trials for political propaganda...

-Contents of Saddam's letter (translated from Arabic)

"The hour of liberation is at hand, God willing, but remember
that your near-term goal is confined to freeing your country
from the forces of occupation and their followers and not be
preoccupied with settling scores or deviate from your goal."

-Raid Juhi, a chief investigating judge in the trial linked to the anti-Shiite crackdown, said:
"A verdict against Saddam and (7) co- defendants will be announced Nov. 5."
Sentences for those found guilty...
will be issued the same day.

Hanging Saddam Would Cause Chaos
At a news conference, Clark said he feared that should Saddam and the others be hanged, "catastrophic violence" would follow that would lead to "the end of civilization as we know it in the birthplace of civilization, Mesopotamia. Total, unmitigated chaos."
