Too easy, yes.

I wish the death penalty in our country was this swift.

I can barely make him out in that crappy video. Was that really him, it kinda looks like him but I am not sure it is. One would think they would have a professional videographer there to document the event. I mean this guy took more footage of the floor than of Saddam. The Insurgents make better videos than these guys, hell half the people in the room are probably insurgents or at least know some. One can not tell from this video if they actually hung him, since the camera does not show him fall. All it shows is him standing, then we see a cut to the floor then a close up of Saddam lying down. Heck he might still be alive. In the end it raises the question did they really hang him?

Im sure this vid is just a guy taking the video on a camera phone or something. I'm sure better video will surface soon.

Well, now that you mentioned it, I will admit this whole thing went too smooth, from the trial to execution.

With the money, and connections this guy has anything is possible.

cbsbyte: That was footage from a cellphone camera.

The actuall official footage of the long drop and sharp stop hasn't been released by the Iraqis yet.

I wish the death penalty in our country was this swift.There's no ACLU in Iraq to file endless appeals.

Professional video was taken, but unedited version has not been released that I've seen.

Its him. If you look at the last few seconds you will see the knot hitting the exact part of his face that appeared bloodied and raw in the fox photos of the corpse.

When I saw the fox corpse photos I wondered if they roughed him up a bit before the hanging. But it was obviously caused by the sideways angle of the knot and that snapping of his neck.

He deserved much worse..

Just remember - it's all George Bush's fault. Cheney was in one of the masks, speaking native Arabic...

Sheesh.

He was a despotic dictator. He had a lot of folks killed. He died for it. Next?

You're right it is. Here we discuss Legal and Political issues that are firearms or individual freedom related. This is not now, nor will it ever be on topic anywhere on THR.
