Bribing people -- as half of France and most of Russia found out during the UN Oil-for-Food-for-bribes-for-Weapons scam -- was Saddam's favorite way to do business. (Iraqis got Mercedes Benzes by the hundreds). So it shouldn't be too much of a surprise to see this LA Times report that witnesses at Saddam's trial are recanting their testimony and alleging they'd been bribed by Saddam's lawyers.

The report doesn't mention involvement by Ramsey Clark in the bribe scheme. We're not lucky enough to have that happen and result in Clark cooling his heels in an Iraqi jail for a coupla years. Pity.
