Saddam Hussein’s courtroom theatrics and diatribes seem to have thrown his war crimes trial temporarily off track. But disruptive behavior has been used as a defense tactic in several recent war-crimes tribunals. Kojo and his guests discuss courtroom misbehavior, its effectiveness and how it impacts the victims the courts are created to protect.

Guests

  • Larry Kaplow Baghdad correspondent for Cox Newspapers
  • Susana SaCouto Director of the War Crimes Research Office (WCRO) at American University Washington College of Law
  • Raymond Brown Visiting Professor and Research Scholar at Seton Hall University Law School
