I saw an interview in which an expert on military history said that Saddam
Hussein actually has a law degree. He went on to point out that the degree was
granted under somewhat unusual circumstances: Saddam Hussein was accompanied by
two heavily armed guards into the examination room, and apparently it was felt
that there was no need to grade the exam.
Upon hearing this, my first thought was that Saddam had cheated. But the
expert quickly pointed out that the incident demonstrates that Saddam really has
an excellent understanding of Iraqi law.
