Homeless Tyrant Saddam To Hang Today?
I mean what does the poor bum have to live for?
He lost his empire and is reduced to living in a tiny room in a public housing shelter with absolutely no chance for employment ever again as a tyrant in the tight job market for that vocation in the Middle East.
I'm sure this will be viewed as a mercy killing.
Maliki wants it done by Sunday, but like Ed says, we wouldn’t transfer him to the Iraqis unless the execution was imminent. The risk of someone on their side tipping the jihadis to his whereabouts or even trying to bust him out themselves is too great. Baghdad is eight hours ahead of us; don’t be surprised if there’s big breaking news this afternoon a little after 4 p.m. eastern time.
