Asshole of the Week 

The choice is very easy: Robert Fisk, the leftie writer for the London "Independent", who decided to name in the print the Iraqi judge trying Saddam. This despite the fact that the Iraqi Special Tribunal has asked the media to protect his anonymity. Needless to say, the judge is now in fear for his life.

Simon Kelner, editor of the "Independent", had this to say: "This was not a British court, it was an Iraqi court. We don't want to compromise the judge's safety but the cameras showed side views of him and he was instantly recognised by many Iraqis." Ah, that's alright then.
