The Perils of Journalism

From the Guardian (my emphasis) and this is something I've seen in other news sources:

According to Salem Chalabi, the head of the tribunal set up to try the leaders of the former regime, Saddam, 67, looked to be in good health and sat in a chair as Mr Chalabi explained his rights to him. He appeared to have lost weight and did not have the beard he was wearing when he was arrested.

Looking at the BBC pictures of his court appearance, Saddam's five o'clock shadow sure is bad.
