Former Iraqi President Saddam Hussein has been executed by hanging at an unspecified location in Baghdad, for crimes against humanity.

Iraqi TV said the execution took place just before 0600 local time (0300GMT).

The news was confirmed to the BBC by the Iraqi Deputy Foreign Minister, Labeed Abawi.

Two co-defendants, Saddam Hussein's half-brother Barzan al-Tikriti and former Iraqi chief judge Awad Hamed al-Bandar, were also executed.

Poor Democrats. They oppose the death penalty and support Saddam. Double whammy.

Once again, a classic one liner.

Seriously though, will Saddam's death make a difference or not?

It'll make no difference whatsoever. He was neutralized a long time ago.

I find it interesting the whole process from capture to death generally took less time then the OJ Trial....

Yeah, and in this one the verdict was right...

No bloody glove to get him off I guess ;)

I support the death penalty, but I have a lot of ambivalent feelings about this development. All in all, I do feel the world is a better place as a result of his execution.

If anyone is interested, drudgereport.com has a link to a cell-phone recorded video showing the deed. The video is shaky, fuzzy and indistinct but it does appear authentic. That being said, it's not much to see.

But you can always count on the incompetent thugs running the Iraqi government to remake a despot like Saddam into a sympathetic figure (perhaps even a martyr who will be mythologized in the Sunni Arab world) by turning the execution into a YouTube farce.

The Americans will not be leaving Iraq anytime soon, no matter how many "surge" strategies are contemplated. They will have to find another Saddam - perhaps not quite as insane - and give him just enough latitude to run his country with an iron fist. Only then can US/UK forces withdraw to bases in Kuwait and, perhaps, Turkey.

They're getting ready to deliver Saddam's co-defendants to Allah. According to some news reports, they were disappointed when they weren't able to depart on the same night as Saddam did... and they're determined to go like Saddam did... with a smile on his face and spitting defiance to the end.

And UN is crying for their release. I wonder where UN was when Saddam was killing thousands? Did they beg saddam to spare the lives of those poor people too?
