Their First Taste Of American Justice

My Way News:
BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Baghdad's new courthouse is held up by U.S. officials as a symbol of the independent legal system three years of U.S. occupation has brought, but defense lawyers are angry at what they say is summary American justice.

'During Saddam's time we couldn't say a word. Now we scream and scream and nobody listens,' defense attorney Thabit Zubeidi told Reuters as he waited on standby for officials to appoint him to defend those accused who had no other representation.
Kind of bitter, kind of salty wouldn't you say?
