If you think there is a real government and judciary in Iraq you are sadly mistaken. Saddams trial didn't meet the standards of the civilized world. No doubt he was guilty of far more than he was actually hung for, but there is no excuse in the world for accepting the rag tag mob that executed him. Pitiful display of ineptitude of the American mentors of democratic institutions and their Iraqi students. Punish him yes!!!, but do it at the highest level of human evolvement.
