Saddam (may his named be blotted out) was executed on the 8th of Tevet, the same day that Adolph Eichmann was sentenced to death 1961. Saddam )may his name be erased and trashed forever) was a bad man, and no amount of apologetics from ultra-leftists (calling him our dictator) can change the fact that Saddam (may his named be blotted out) was evil, perpetuated evil, even if at times at the behest of other countries. I remember running for bomb shelters and sealed rooms in 1991, donning our gas masks, unsure which of the next scuds was carrying the promised payload of biological or chemical weapons. Boy, that was fun! Saddam (may his named be blotted out) also tortured and repressed Jews in Iraq. A recent Al Jazeera propaganda piece though on You Tube seems to claim otherwise. Did he receive a “fair trial”, General Wesley Clark? Fair trail in Baghdad, yah. He should have been hung the moment they found him in the little pit.
