Ding, Dong...

the bitch is dead.

Saddam, I mean.

Yeah, I know. It's old news. It occurred to me, though, that having blogged a few times about his trial, maybe I should say something about the end result.

I'm glad the man is dead. He deserved to be killed for the things he did. As I've said before, I'm not pleased about how it was brought about. We should have done it, and we should have done it immediately when he was caught. Turning him over to the Iraqis, as if he was their enemy and not ours was wrong. Letting them conduct a kangaroo court that could only have one outcome was a travesty, and they turned the execution into a circus. It was badly done.

But at least it's done now.
