They Painted the Playpen

Saddam went back to court today, was defiant, and the proceedings were delayed until next Monday. Between his first visit to the special courtroom and today, they have painted the “playpen” that Saddam sits in. It’s now painted brown. It used to be white. Any thoughts on why?
Saddam complained about having to walk up four flights of stairs in shackles and under foriegn guard. He tried to take control of the courtroom. The delays were a result of the defense team needing to replace two deceased attorneys and one who fled the country. The judge agreed to give them a week. (source)
