Iraqi TV Report: Saddam gets death sentence
Iraqi TV Report: Saddam gets death sentence
by Marcus Junius Brutus
Mon Oct 30, 2006 at 06:40:28 PM PST

Norwegian news site Nettavisen

Saddam Hussein will be condemned to death, according to an Iraqi TV station. The prosecutor refused comment.

It was Al-Forat that Monday reported that Iraq's former dictator will get the death sentence. The TV station did not reveal its source(s).

Refused Comment
"It is not I who decides if Saddam gets the death penalty. That is up to the judges, and therefor I will not comment the TV report, says chief prosecutor Jaafar Al-Mussawi to Nettavisen monday evening."

"I hope the decision is made public on Sunday, November 5th. But I will say to you and all Iraqis in Norway, that it is a sure thing that all of the evidence we have is enough to ensure that Saddam and his cohorts will get the death sentence(s)", he continued.

1. Can we put it on hold until he spills the beans on his Bush friends.
My head is spinning with the thoughts that come flooding in regarding this.

Rumsfeld shaking his hand...

I imagine that Saddam has made his case that if he is to be punished, then there are a dozen or so Americans, Rumsfeld is one, that need to be "right there on his lap".

2. "It is not I who decides... "
No,it's not.It has been decided that Saddam would die

a long time before that ridiculous parody of a trial, by

the Chimperor and his goons.
