"Marilyn said: "and I would swear that the people doing the hanging were Americans." - Tim Pretty weird to think the men making such Iraqi taunts were American. The only role America had was turning Saddam over for execution. The Iraqi government had nothing for contempt for the US position or it would have delayed the execution until a few more show trials had occurred. "You don`t think the shiites have it in them to execute Sadam?" - Tim Al Sadr's father was hung by Saddam, Al Sadr's men had revenge. How did Al Sadr's men have control of the execution? What does this say about the current Bushiz position that there will be a government crackdown on the Shiite militia when we crack down - surge - against the Sunni?

This was one of the few intelligent decisions made by the American authorities in Iraq.
