Bosnian Serb leader to defend himself in trial

Speaking of genocide...

A lawyer for Radovan Karadzic says the former Bosnian Serb leader plans to conduct his own defense when he appears on genocide and war-crimes charges before the United Nations tribunal in The Hague.
And for those of you who, like me, don't know the history of this situation because the media is too busy giving Barry WAY too much attention...
Genocide charges against Karadzic stem from the 1995 massacre of about eight thousand Muslim men and boys near the Bosnian city of Srebrenica. He also charged for the siege of Sarajevo - a blockade in which snipers, shellfire, disease and starvation killed thousands of people in the Bosnian capital.
