Video Footage of the Execution of Saddam Hussein

As I wrote elsehwere:

Saddam, his sons, and his grandson are now dead, because of his actions. Bush has now demonstrated the sort of moral courage that our country has not seen since Truman: executing an enemy head-of-government [the last one was Tojo, Japan’s wartime Prime Minister].

“Official” video of the execution of Saddam Hussein is available from Google Video, such as this BBC feed:

Additionally, Catholicgauze has obtained unofficial video of the execution, which he is hosting on his blog:

Examples like this, of course, have a long history.

Tom Barnett and ZenPundit have written their reactions.

  1. Catholicgauze,

    No problem! Silence in Mind also has some thoughts:

    “The Iraqi judicial system demanded that Saddam be punished by death via hanging. He died on December 30th, 2006. Though the man is dead and can no longer command fear on innocent Iraqis, Kurds, and other people; the legacy of terror lives on. I want to say that his death is the end of a horrible era, but in truth, the larger battle for security in the Middle East and the rest of the world continues on.”
