Saddam’s Swan Song
Posted by: Dale Franks on Tuesday, December 26, 2006

Saddam Hussein is a step closer to a big milestone: his execution.
An Iraqi appeals court has upheld the death sentence imposed on Saddam Hussein at his first trial, Iraq's national security adviser said Tuesday, and a tribunal official said the verdict will be carried out even if the presidency doesn't ratify it.

"The appeals court approved the verdict to hang Saddam," Mouwafak al-Rubaie told The Associated Press.

On Nov. 5, an Iraqi court sentenced Saddam to the gallows for the 1982 killings of 148 people from a Shiite Muslim town after an attempt on his life there.

The appeals court decision must be ratified by President Jalal Talabani and Iraq's two vice presidents. Talabani opposes the death penalty but has in the past deputized a vice president to sign an execution order on his behalf — a substitute that was legally accepted.

Once the decision is ratified, Saddam and other co-defendants sentenced to death at the trial would be hanged within 30 days.
As far as I'm concerned, this comes about 15 years too late, but, as they say, the wheels of the gods grind slowly, but ever so fine.

I was hoping for a good ole fashioned stoning...but a public execution will be almost as good. Adios souchebag.
