Former Iraqi president Saddam Hussein pled not guilty at the beginning of his trial Wednesday. Saddam refused to confirm his identity before the judge, insisting that he is still president of Iraq. He continued to denounce the legitimacy of the court to judge him while Iraq was under American occupation. In spite of his defiance, the Kurdish judge coerced the former tyrant to answer a direct question and claim his innocence, Sky News reported.
