How Saddam was killed

Filed under: Across the Universe — Chinmayi @ 4:27 pm

The odd thing about this horrible episode of jeering at Saddam’s execution, is that it could very easily have been covered up. The only reason it came out at all was because people managed to make unauthorised recordings of the incidents . I don’t know whether they meant well or not, but the whole affair is such a powerful argument for how the media usually obscures what really happened.

I haven’t been following it as carefully as I’d like to but if the entire thing is on tape, why are they going after those that recorded it instead of those that jeered?

Brilliant post titled ‘A lynching’ at Baghdad Burning.

Such cowards. Such loathsome cowards. To taunt a man with a noose around his neck…
