Meeting Saddam's Judge

During my mid-January 2009 Rule of Law Training near Washington DC, I met Ra'id Juhi Hamadi Al Saedi, the chief investigative judge for the trial of Saddam Hussein and a current fellow at Cornell's School of Law. Judge Al Saedi conducted one of our training sessions and shared several meals with our training class.

I was pleasantly surprised to learn how approachable Judge Al Saedi was. During the training sessions, Judge Al Saedi welcomed questions about Saddam, the trial, and Iraqi culture.
