What tribunal should try Saddam? 

The Times opines:

While every effort should be made to maximize Iraqi involvement, Iraq's judicial institutions are too weak to handle the case. Although last week's creation of an Iraqi war crimes tribunal was a promising step, we would suggest this trial be conducted in Iraq under United Nations auspices by international and Iraqi judges. A tribunal picked by Americans would lack legitimacy.

What they said...

Incidentally, it's a little weird that the Iraqi tribunal was set up only last week, especially since the "Governing" Council finds it difficult to agree on anything.

Did the Council (and Bremer, and Bush) know something we didn't?
