Saddam Hussein loses appeal

So Saddam Hussein has lost his appeal and will be hanged. When and where is still in doubt as no date has been fixed but it has to be within 30 days. He is currently facing a second trial but the gallows still beckon even if court proceedings are still under way. Yeah, I am sure Donald Rumsfeld doesn't have to worry any more about being implicated.

According to deputy White House press secretary, Scott Stanzel: "Saddam Hussein has received due process and legal rights that he denied the Iraqi people for so long, so this is an important day for the Iraqi people,"

But a travesty is a travesty especially when the occupiers are only too keen to keep their old buddy quiet.....

Saddam Hussein executed today (30th Dec). Think this report in today's Independent sums it up.
