Aljazeera: No Sunni lawyer was allowed to be among the execution witnesses
So the US gave Saddam over to the Mahdi army for execution?

"But there is a clear message coming out of that video - that the al-Mahdi Army is there and in charge of anything that's happening in Iraq now."

'Act of revenge'

Najib al-Nuaimi, a member of the defence team, told Al Jazeera on Sunday that no Sunni lawyer was allowed to be among the execution witnesses and that the conduct of those present showed it was an act of revenge and for political purposes.

"This is not in the normal procedures to execute a normal person," he said.

"It's full of hatred and it's very ugly. It's nothing to do with the Dujail case."

2. That is what I take away from it all, myself. And we should be worried.
Put these events in context with the recent summoning of Cheney to Saudi Arabia. It bodes poorly for peace in the region. About the only ones who may benefit are the Israelis, because the Sunni and Shia will be too busy going after each other to bother so much with the Jews....

3. Sickening. All of it. So patently UN-AMERICAN. This rushed hanging
is nothing more than murder; the taunting and black hoods just emphasize how low the U.S. has sunk with an insane freak at the helm.
Congratulations, Dubya, you made Saddam look to be the better man...
