When Defending Saddam is not enough.

Ramesy Clark will now be head of the prosecution at a "mock trial" of George Bush, the US president, and the British and Israeli prime ministers for alleged war crimes committed in Iraq and the Palestinian territories.

"The two-day event, set to open on Friday in the Egyptian capital, will be sponsored by the Cairo-based Federation of Arab Lawyers."

Could the left get any nuttier? Seriously. It gets better:

"It will bring together international lawyers and human rights activists including Ahmed Ben Bella, the former Algerian president, and ex-Malaysian leader Mahathir Mohamad.

Ziad Khasawna, the federation's assistant secretary-general and once Saddam Hussein's chief lawyer, said Nelson Mandela, the former South African leader and anti-apartheid icon, had accepted an invitation to be the chief judge if his health allows him to travel.

Ben Bella and Mohamad are also part of a committee to ensure Saddam's trial is fair."

Nelson. Mandela. I may puke. The same people defending a sick and brutal dictator want to prosecute Bush, the one who took him down. And to top it off a former attorney general of the U.S. will head the prosecution!

Have these people walked through the looking glass?
