Bush Admin Afraid that Saddam’s Trial May Reveal Secrets They Don’t Want Revealed

AP - BRUSSELS, Belgium - Iraq's justice minister accused the United States on Tuesday of trying to hinder the Iraqi investigation of Saddam Hussein by limiting his access to interrogators, and said "it seems there are lots of secrets they [the Bush Administration] want to hide."

Justice Minister Abdel Hussein Shandal alleged that U.S. officials are trying to limit access to Saddam because they have their own secrets to protect, including funneling money and support to the Iraqi leader during his rule.

"It seems there are lots of secrets they want to hide," Shandal said.

"There should be transparency and there should be frankness, but there are secrets that if revealed, won't be in the interest of many countries," he said. "Who was helping Saddam all those years?"

So far when Sadam has been questioned before cameras the Bush Administration has insisted that the audio not be broadcast, only the video. The Bush Administration has also been pushing for a trial behind closed doors where such secrets will not be learned by the public.
