Saddam has been executed.
Edited on Fri Dec-29-06 09:12 PM by originalpckelly
10 minutes ago.

Now being reported by Al-Hura and Al-Arabiya. CNN and other western outlets are working to confirm this report. As of yet they cannot confirm it.

9. This is CNN.
I am watching it as we speak. I am also trying to get on Al-Iraqiya television. It's not working. Ten minutes ago they didn't have this on however, so the execution was not live.

They just created a Sunni martyr. I hate to think what the retaliation will be to Saddam's death.

18. That's modern journalism for ya!
"Nadine Brzezinski, quoting Reuters' citation of Al Hura's report based on word from a possibly official source" still carries more weight than anything ever broadcast on FOX News Channel.
