HOWARD DEAN STATEMENT ON THE SADDAM VERDICT

The DNC chairman praises the result that would not have come without the actions he opposed:

Justice for the Iraqi people was finally served today with the conviction of Saddam Hussein. This dictator ruled by fear, torturing and murdering his own people to satisfy his malicious interests. It’s commendable and important that he was brought to justice in the country where he committed these atrocities against humanity.
