Saddam Says He's on a Hunger Strike

Yahoo! News reported
Saddam Hussein and three former officials in his regime on Tuesday told the court handling their trial that they were on a hunger strike in protest of the judge overseeing the proceedings. Saddam said he had not eaten in three days, while his former intelligence chief, Ibrahim Barzan, said he had been on strike for two days.
Please don't force feed them. Just prepare some food that smells delicious, and place it outside their cells, just outside of their reach.
Their claims of a hunger strike could not be independently confirmed. The defendants are being held in U.S. detention, and U.S. officials could not immediately be reached to comment.
