Saddam Hussein's chief lawyer said Sunday he plans to publish a book in the coming year disclosing secret information about the executed Iraqi leader. "Any lawyer who worked on such a big case has the right to write his [Saddam's] diary," said Khalil al-Dulaimi, a Baghdad attorney, who served as Saddam's confidante and main legal counsel since the deposed dictator's interrogation by US and Iraqi authorities on June 14, 2005. Al-Dulaimi said his book would "clear up some points about facts that haven't yet been announced." He would not say whether he had already started writing the book, but said he would reprint as many as 300 personal letters, poems and other miscellaneous works written by the deposed leader.
