White House is lying, Saddam tells court
Updated: 2005-12-22 17:11

Saddam Hussein accused the White House on Thursday of lying by saying he had chemical weapons before the U.S.-led invasion on 2003.

"The White House are liars. They said Iraq had chemical weapons," the former Iraqi president told his trial. "They lied again when they said that what Saddam said was wrong."

The latter accusation may have been a response to a White House denial of a claim that Saddam made on Wednesday, when he said he had been tortured in U.S. custody.
