It's SHOW and tell, Saddam (by the way, horrible torture, yawn)

Saddam Says He's Been Beaten in Detention
Are the bumps on his thighs roughly the same height as tabletops? Who knows? By the way, Saddam may have done a couple little nasty things himself. The Associated Press specializes in burying the lead.
BAGHDAD, Iraq - After several hours of quietly listening to testimony, Saddam Hussein alleged in a long outburst at his trial Wednesday that he had been beaten "everywhere on my body" while in detention.

The chief prosecutor said that if American-led multinational forces were abusing the former Iraqi leader, he would be transferred into the custody of Iraqi troops.

"Yes, I have been beaten, everywhere on my body. The marks are still there," Saddam told the court. "And I'm not complaining about the Americans, because I can poke their eyes with my own hands."

Earlier, Saddam sat quietly as a witness testified that his regime killed and tortured people by administering electric shocks and ripping off their skin after pouring molten plastic on it.

Saddam is a very courageous denizen of underground bunkers and spider holes. What a nice Saddam, sitting quietly. Give him a treat.
