Terrorists Kidnap 8 Year Old Son of Saddam Guard

These are the scum that Howard Dean and Jack Murtha want us to surrender to.

From the Associated Press:
BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) - Saddam Hussein followed through on his threat to boycott his trial Wednesday, and gunmen kidnapped the 8-year-old son of a bodyguard for a judge.

The 8-year-old boy, Karim Salam, was grabbed Tuesday as he played in front of his parents' house in the eastern Baghdad neighborhood of Kamsarah, according to his father, Salam Hirmiz Gorgis.

"At about 5:30 p.m. a car came here," Gorgis told AP Television News. "They took my son, put him in the car and left,"

Gorgis works for one of the trial's five judges. The judge's identity cannot be revealed because of special security measures. Two attorneys representing co-defendants have been assassinated since the trial began Oct. 19.
Elsewhere in the story, the writer notes:
One of Saddam's seven co-defendants lashed out at conditions of his own detention, saying guards offered only "the worst brands" of cigarettes.
