End of a Dictator

Bumped to the top
12/30/06 00:55 EST: I have it on good authority that Saddam was executed at 4:22 AM... and every media source on the planet is wrong about the 6:00 AM execution.


1:54 EST: Just got a reconfirmation from my source minutes ago. Saddam Hussein has about two hours to live, with a midnight execution still scheduled.

2:20: EST: Corroboration.

3:04 EST: Source: "they're gearing up, but logistics could put it in the wee hours after midnight. Absolutely no later than dawn, which is close to midnight our time. The Iraqis are not always as punctual as the U.S. military."

3:08 EST: Source: "It's still entirely possible he'll be dead within the hour. The curtain of secrecy draws tighter as the hour draws nearer. "

Note: this will be my final update until the deed is done-- CY.

According to an anonymous source, the former President of Iraq will be executed by hanging at 12:00 AM midnight Baghdad-time on Saturday/4:00 PM EST Friday afternoon at an undisclosed location.

If my source is correct, Saddam Hussein is facing his final sunrise.


Sooner, Rather than Later?

Update: Fox News confirms that Hussein's death sentence has been signed, and that Saddam will be executed by Saturday.

They need to string up Kim not Hung in Korea next! Along with the fruitcake in Iran! Make it a gala new year celebration.

Saddam's punishment on Earth will pale in comparison to the one he will soon face.

Fox News now quoting Iraqi MP (didn't catch the name) that Saddam is in Iraqi custody, all the paperwork is in order, and it will be soon.

I guess this caption contest could be the last caption contest he ever sees?

So they'll be a few hours off. The presstitutes are now reporting that Saddam will be swinging by 6 am Baghdad time.

reminds me of family car trips when I was a kid; "are we there yet?" - "no, five more minutes." The old man would say five more minutes for 3 hours then eventually, when we arrived, claim, "see, told you only five more minutes."

See a sarcastic visual of George Bush playing a round of “Hangman”…here:

Good riddance, all we need now to execute is Kim and the pricks causing genocide in Darfur. Oh, and Osama, too.

And speaking of sarcastic and disrespectful, I took the liberty of imagining Hussein's initial conversation with Satan.

Good riddance is right.

Love the South Park visual!

That vid is nothing.

Drive cross country coast to coast more than once or twice and you'll see a lot worse in person.

A neighbor of mine years ago used to have a contract with the state police to do all the insurance wreck tow jobs locally. The stuff and body parts you'd see in those cars was a test of composure, this was nothing.
