Saddam Taunted by “Unmanly” Cowards at Gallows

An arrest has been made in Iraq after a cell-phone video of Saddam Hussein’s hanging was made public over the internet. On the audio portion of the recording voices can clearly be heard taunting the former dictator as he is led to the gallows. Saddam can also be heard admonishing the offenders for their “unmanly" conduct.

The Incident casts further doubt as to the fairness of Saddam’s trial, and the true reasons behind the extended US occupation. Many Iraqis now view the execution as an act of Shia revenge. Obviously, the execution was botched and poorly planned.

Al-Arabiya television has reported that the person under arrest was a member of the execution team, although the information has not been verified. The development follows Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki’s announcement on Tuesday that he had ordered an investigation into the manner in which the execution was conducted. Meanwhile violence in Iraq continues unabated.

Again, George W. Bush and his administration receive a black eye for their effort in the war against terror, a war George W. Bush clearly wanted, and one which has clearly been lost.

2007 begins with over three thousand US fatalities in Iraq, with no end to the violence predicted for the foreseeable future.
