Like a fox.

While a woman known only as Witness A spoke from behind a screen, her voice digitally altered, about being tortured by Saddam's agents, Saddam sat blankly. Throughout the testimony, his face remained frozen while his hands feverishly jotted notes and when he finally got a chance to speak at the end of the session, he rose and eloquently spoke the speech he had
apparently been putting together throughout the entire testimony.

"I will not return. I will not come to an unjust court! Go to Hell!"

Poetic and blunt. But, I wonder, Mr. Hussein, if it really takes all fifteen-twenty minutes (and that's a low estimate) of testimony to compile fifteen words. Seems to me, you could really benefit from a little time management and a dab of multi-tasking. Like, perhaps, while writing this crazy rhetoric, you could at the same time dig deep and see if there's even a single sane cell with a sane notion buried inside you. Sure, after a minute or two, you'd most likely come up empty-handed. But, that'd still give you another ten minutes to write some more crazy.
