THE HAGUE -- The prosecution in Slobodan Milosevic's war crimes trial moved yesterday to rest its case two days early as the chief prosecutor conceded her team had not produced "the smoking gun" to convict the former Yugoslav president of genocide, the most serious charge against him.Wait, wait, wait...the only reason we went in to Yugoslavia and Kosovo was because they were committing genocide. We knew that was happening, so we stepped in to stop it. Now they're saying at The Hague that it can't be 'proven'? I agree with Glenn's assessment of hypocrisy, but just think - the UN, and France, and Germany, etc. want us to give Saddam Hussein over to The Hague for trial.
"I know that I don't have the smoking gun on the count of genocide, and we will see what the trial chamber decides," chief prosecutor Carla del Ponte said in an interview only minutes after she signed a motion to end the prosecution's two-year case.
