Human Rights Watch is questioning whether Saddam Hussein will be getting a fair trial tomorrow. And while a fair trial is nice and all, I have to say, it's freaking Saddam: does it really matter?

Don't get me wrong — I totally support Human Rights Watch and the work they do, and I know that there are plenty of places in the world, not the least of which being America, where people are thrown in the gulag without any sort of day in court. I just think that the human rights organizations should devote their limited resources to the people who got caught up in this geopolitical net without being brutal dictators.
