"I was tortured", Saddam Whimpers in Court

BAGHDAD, Iraq - Saddam Hussein interrupted his trial Wednesday to allege he had been beaten and tortured while in U.S. custody and still had the marks on his body.

"I have been hit by the Americans and tortured," he said during his trial on charges of crimes against humanity. "I have been beaten on every place of my body, and the signs are all over my body."
Thank you to all those whose short term political goals have so watered down the definition of torture that this senile old mass murderer thinks wearing the same underwear for three days qualifies.

Evidently, the marks are all on the back of his body.
