NBC News just broke into programming with a special report.
I do not believe in state-sponsored executions anymore than I believe in murder of any other type. I also have a great many questions about the way he was tried.
Mind you, I am and was not a Saddam fan, let alone an apologist.
But his rushed trial, the order from the Bushies to hand down a guilty verdict with death sentence just before the mid-term elections, and then the rush to execute him just hours after an Iraqi appeals court upheld the verdict to hang him just adds to the very bad, very corrupt smell coming off all this we have done in Iraq.
Expect the violence in Iraq to worsen, if that is possible.
