The Fallout Of The Saddam Video

An official investigation has been launched regarding the leaked cell phone video of Saddam's execution which was first featured among Middle East blogs here on Whisper of Madness. The Iraqi Government wants to know who took the video and who leaked it. According to witnesses security measures were taken to prevent cell phones in the execution chamber.

However, chief prosecutor Munqith Faroon -- who also was among the 14 people inside the chamber -- told Danish television that he knew of two senior officials in the chamber who had cell phones, despite security measures in place to prevent such devices from being brought into the room.

"How they took them in, I don't know," Faroon said.

"We were searched one by one before going into the room. They had a box to place phones in," he added.

The investigation has also brought with it many interesting revelations including that U.S. officials urged Iraqi government officials to hold off on the execution for 2 weeks to prevent a perception of Shi'a revenge as opposed to justice for all Iraqis. I would guess George Bush crapped on himself when he read the translation of executioners and onlookers screaming the name of Muqtada al Sadr and shouting, "go to hell" (more or less). I never thought I would concede that Saddam's execution could effectively widen the gap between Sunni's and Shi'as but then again I don't think the widening needs much assistance.

BTW. To all you people who complained about the "U.S." executing Saddam on Eid, you might be happy to know they begged them not to do it. Idiots.
