Report: Saddam will swing at 10 PM ET…or earlier
[10:25 – Iraqi TV says Hussein has been executed (CNN).]
With U.S. forces on high alert for a surge in violence, the Iraqi government readied all the necessary documents, including a “red card” – an execution order introduced during Saddam’s dictatorship. As the hour of his death approached, Saddam received two of his half brothers in his cell on Thursday and was said to have given them his personal belongings and a copy of his will.
…An adviser to Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki said Saddam would be executed before 6 a.m. Saturday, or 10 p.m. Friday EST. Also to be hanged at that time were Saddam’s half-brother Barzan Ibrahim and Awad Hamed al-Bandar, the former chief justice of the Revolutionary Court, the adviser said.
[and how about this quote?]
“The Americans want him to be hanged respectfully,” al-Nueimi said. If Saddam is humiliated publicly or his corpse ill-treated “that could cause an uprising and the Americans would be blamed,” he said.
Pulling up my questions from last night‘s post on this…
1) how long before regional violence escalates after the former Iraqi dictator swings from the rope?
2) how long before that video of Saddam’s execution hits the internet?
and a third for tonight:
3) how long before the video airs on Faux News?
Not that I have any sympathy for the Iraqi dictator, but the outlandish bloodlust in Freeperland is mind-boggling…Note that this is before the execution…
The sooner the better! Is he still pleading for mercy?

Amazing. First it was “maybe this weekend”, then “Saturday, tops”, now it’s “he’ll swing tonight.”
If they keep this up he may actually be dead before they decide to hang him. The American justice system could learn a thing or two!
It will be on YouTube 3 minutes later.
This is sure to upset dedicated moonbats around the world, but not to fear. The KOS gang and the DUmmies are ready…grief counselors are standing by.
Prime time. Cool. Is it time for someone to start a deathwatch thread?
I shouldn’t laugh…BUT I DID! LOL
And may the Iraqi people’s long national nightmare finally be over for them. Thank you President Bush, Donald Rumsfeld and every brave man and woman serving in the US Armed forces.
Any time you have a former ruler incarcerated like that, that figure can become the center for all sorts of plots, by people with various agendas, to free and/or reinstate. The Iraqi government is wise to execute Saddam quickly before he becomes a world-wide cause celebre for the moonbats.
“The Americans want him to be hanged respectfully,”
By the ‘nads or just his tallywhacker?
After SADDAM assumes room temperature , is he going to be put back in the same spider hole he was found in ?
How many of these clowns are willing to enlist, suit up and go in to clean up the mess BushCo has made of Iraq?
