From cbc.ca – more barbarism

Some of the executioners taunted Saddam and shouted slogans from radical Shia cleric Muqtada al-Sadr. Saddam attempted to mock him, uttering his name before he was hanged, Haddad said.
“The moment he was hanged, I walked out of the room,” he said.

Iraqi security adviser Mouwafak al-Rubaie, who witnessed the execution, said Saddam was “a broken man” and showed fear before his death. He told CNN some of the witnesses and one of the executioners danced around Saddam’s body in celebration.

Despite U.S. forces being on high alert in the wake of the execution, there was no sign of a feared Sunni uprising in retaliation and the bloodshed from civil warfare was not far off the daily average — 92 from bombings and death squads.

The U.S. military announced six more service-members — three soldiers and three Marines — were killed Friday.
