Saddam: "I was tortured"

From FoxNews:
BAGHDAD, Iraq — Saddam Hussein launched into an extended outburst at his trial Wednesday, alleging he had been beaten and tortured by his American captors while in detention...

Last time I checked, he had ears, his tongue, and all his fingers. Under the Saddam regime, any torturer that failed in such a manner would probably have been fired.
After sitting quietly through several hours of testimony, Saddam said he'd been beaten "everywhere on my body. The marks are still there."

Dude, you're old now! Those aren't torture marks, they're age marks!
About 10 minutes later, Saddam swung his chair to the left, closed his eyes and repeatedly bowed his head in what appeared to be about a minute-long prayer, the first time he has done that in court.

Now would that be toward Mecca or towards the jury box?
