Re: Ann Clwyd comes to town

Also, one other point.  What evidence is there that if Indict had done its
job properly, Saddam Hussein would have been indicted?  There is no court
that is able to indict him.  There are the Arusha and Yugoslavia
tribunals, but that is all.  So whatever Indict could have done, at this
stage the likelihood is that Saddam Hussein would not have been indicted.

Members of CASI have consistently called for a less confrontational stance
to Iraq.  Had Saddam been indicted, he would be even more of an
international pariah and country's would have found it very difficult to
negotiate with him or the government he leads now or at any time in the

Furthermore, how can you say that if Saddam had been indicted then all the
Kuwaiti PoWs and similar detainees would have been freed?  What evidence
is there for this?
