Instead, he’s taking a dirt nap.
The U.S. military and FOX News have not yet confirmed that the execution has taken place. Al Jazeera, Al Arabiya wire services and U.S.-backed TV station Al Hurrah reported his death.
The man dubbed the Butcher of Baghdad was convicted of crimes against humanity for the killing of 148 Shiite men and young boys after their failed assassination attempt in 1982 in the village of Dujail.
Hanging was far too good for the fucker. Katie Couric in tears… developing…
On the bright side, he lived long enough to see his wretched, blood-soaked spawn executed and dangled from the same rope as did many of his victims. Still, hanging was far too good.
The video* came out quicker than I expected. Now you can enjoy watching Hussein’s death in much the same way he enjoyed watching videos of the deaths of his own victims. Kind of provides a little closure for some, I would think.
*Scratch that – Liveleak has taken down the video. Oh well, it will appear somewhere else soon.
Also at CNN. Thanks, Billy
