Saddam Hussein's genocide trial against the Kurds resumed Tuesday, a day after the ex-president predicted that insurgents would soon drive US-led forces out of Iraq. Saddam and his six co-defendants were present when the court proceedings began, the first session for six days. In an open letter to Iraqis that his lawyers released Monday, Saddam said Iraq's "liberation is at hand" - an apparent attempt to cast himself as a statesman as Iraq teeters on the brink of civil war and the United States weighs what to do next.
