Saddam Dead by Sunday

***Bumped and Updated***

Update 4:22pm: From Fox News: Saddam's attorneys are asking a US judge, which one I don't know, to block Saddam's transfer from US custody to the Iraqis. One, according to an Iraqi MP, the transfer already took place; and Two, the United States judiciary does not have any jurisdiction over what happens in Iraq. Then again, with some of the liberal activist judges, you never know. Saddam's case could end up being fought out in US courts.

Update 3:41pm: According to ABC News, Saddam will be in a combination of Iraq/US custody and will be guarded by US troops even as his execution is carried out.

Update 2:47pm: Fox New just spoke with an Iraqi government official (Fox named that official but I didn't catch it) that Saddam has been now been handed over to Iraqi authorities, that all documents have been signed and finalized by the Prime Minister, and that Saddam's execution is imminent.

Fox News is sure of this information.

Update 2:41pm: Bob at Confederate Yankee has confirmation from a confidential source about 45 minutes ago who says that Saddam will be executed at midnight Baghdad time Saturday or 4:00pm ET Friday. Well, we'll find out soon enough.

Update 2:20pm: Curt at Flopping Aces makes an important distinction here regarding custody:

I think this may be all a case of semantics. Legal custody may have been transferred to the Iraqi's via documents but not physical.

Oh btw....sunrise in Baghdad is 7:05am Iraqi time. 9 and a half hours from now.

Curt also links to Mohammad at Iraq the Model, who writes that an "al-Arabiya reporter said the noose is already set in a yard in the IZ."

He also offers these updates:

-Tariq Harb, Iraq's most famous judicial expert who's been following and commenting on the trial since the beginning said he expected the execution to take place in the next few hours.


-The Sadrist said they would return to the cabinet and parliament after Saddam is executed.

-Bahaa' al-Aaraji, a Sadrist and member of the parliament's legal commission told al-Iraqiya TV that two execution sites have been prepared; one in the IZ and one in another location he wouldn't disclose.

-Al-Aaraji told al-Iraqiya TV that the government is asking clerics whether it's allowed to carry out executions during religious holidays. He added that he expects Saddam to be executed no later than noon tomorrow.

Breaking Right Now: James Rosen at Fox News says that US sources are telling him that Saddam is still in US custody. Well, this changes everything, at least for now. Saddam's attorneys are saying otherwise. Could this be misinformation by the US trying to quell any uprising? Who knows.

Update: 1:05pm: From Reuters:

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Saddam Hussein could be hanged within hours, a senior Iraqi source told Reuters on Friday after Saddam's lawyer said the former president had been handed over by U.S. forces to Iraqi authorities for execution.


"Things have changed in the past three hours. There were some issues ... and now that is resolved so it seems it's possible he may be hanged tonight," the source, who is in a senior position of authority, said after a day of confusion.

Update 12:42pm: Saddam has not yet been executed. One of Saddam's attorneys Najeeb al Nauimi is on Fox News via telephone right now and it sounds like Saddam will be executed early morning tomorrow. His attorneys are making arrangements for his body to be handed over to his family afterward.

Saddam's execution will be videotaped. Al Nauimi says that Saddam will be very proud and will be smiling when he's led to the gallows.

Al Nauimi also said that Saddam's family asked to visit with Saddam before his execution, but their request was denied. The access to Saddam has got to be really tight.

Update 12:34pm: Jules Crittenden has contacts with contractors in Iraq who are saying it may have already happened.

I was writing those words above when my buddy Sig called, maybe around 11 p.m. last night. His contractor pals in Iraq figure it's already happened. Sig, a San Antonio Express-News reporter in the invasion with three or four more trips to Iraq behind him, honored me by calling me first when he wanted to talk about it.

Saddam Dead by Tomorrow?

Update 12:21pm: Fox is now reporting that it has just crossed the AP wire that Iraqi PM Al-Maliki has signed Saddam's death sentence. This thing is going fast and furious.

Update 11:55am Friday:

A Reuters report says that Saddam has been transferred to Iraq custody:

DUBAI (Reuters) - U.S. officials have transferred former Iraqi President Saddam Hussein to Iraqi custody, the chief defense lawyer told Reuters on Friday.


"The American side has notified us that they have handed over the president to the Iraqi authorities," said Khalil al-Dulaimi, head of Saddam's defense team.

Fox News has also confirmed with Saddam's chief lawyer that Saddam Hussein is now in the custody of the Iraq government. Fox is also reporting that an Iraqi judge says Saddam will be hanged tomorrow.

I'm sure Saddam's lawyer is leaking all this information to gin up as much unrest as possible and to possibly get insurgents to try to break him out of custody.

I don't blame the Iraqis for wanting to execute Saddam as soon as possible. As long as Saddam Hussein is alive, he is risk for being broken out of prison and, with the Iraq government being as new as it is, a coup by Saddam's supporters is simply too much of a risk.

Fox News has confirmed with the US military that Saddam will be handed over to the Iraq government today. He could be hanged within 24 hours after that, possibly as early as later today.

****
NBC is reporting that Saddam is to be hanged before the Eid holiday, which starts Sunday.

Former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein, sentenced to death for his role in 148 killings in 1982, will have his sentence carried out by Sunday, NBC News reported Thursday. According to a U.S. military officer who spoke on condition of anonymity, Saddam will be hanged before the start of the Eid religious holiday, which begins this Sunday.


The hanging could take place as early as Friday, NBC's Richard Engel reported.

The U.S. military received a formal request from the Iraqi government to transfer Saddam to Iraqi authorities, NBC reported on Thursday, which is one of the final steps required before his execution. His sentence, handed down last month, ordered that he be hanged within 30 days.

Tomorrow isn't soon enough as far as I'm concerned. Let's just hope that when Saddam's transferred to Iraqi authorities, which could have happened already, someone from the inside who sympathizes with him doesn't help him escape from custody.

Hat tip: See-Dubya at Hot Air

Update: Saddam's hanging will be video taped although officials say it may not be made public:

Iraqi officials also said that Saddam's final moments will be videotaped by the government, reports CBS News correspondent Randall Pinkston.


"We will video everything," National Security adviser Mouffak al Rubaie said. "All documentation will be videoed. Taking him from cell to the execution is going to be videoed, and the actual execution will be documented and videoed."

Iraqis, members of the coalition and international representatives will witness the execution, Pinkston reports. It's not clear whether the videotape will be broadcast on Iraqi television.

All this means we can expect it to be on YouTube at some point.

The death of Hussein will be more of a kick in the teeth of the bad guys currently in Iraq, since they won't have a figurehead to pretend to be supporting any more. It'll probably cause more inter-Baathist killings, for that matter, since a lot of middle management killers will now think they have a shot at becoming the next Head Honcho.

BC:

With the chaos enveloping Iraq now, especially in regards to the sectarian violence, I wonder now if at least some of Hussein's heavy-handed past brutality was simply his stupid, simplistic method to enforce overall civil order.

The Soviet Union use to use similarly brutal policing tactics and intimidation to enforce peace between antagonistic sectarian groups. Indeed, it's generally recognized that when the Soviet Union broke up, while the US lost a dangerous rival, the world at large became more unstable with the unleashing of formally controlled, violent and power-hungry political factions and states.

As far as Hussein goes, I think it's utterly hypocritcal for anyone who misses Reagan with teary eyes to relish Hussein's upcoming execution. Back in the 80's, when Hussein was just as brutal as he ever was, if not more so, the US under Reagan thought of him as a valuable ally and directly supported him, especially during the nasty Iran-Iraq war. And there is considerable evidence, from even acual once classified documents, that this support, covertly at least, included Hussein's use of bio-chemical weapons. At the minimal, the Reagan administration looked the other way while US firms supplied Hussein with arms and the components to manufacture bio-chemical weapons; at the maximal, which Iran has always contended was the case, the US actually directly supplied Hussein with such weapons.

See: Wikipedia Article, Iran Chamber Article, and Some Declassifed Records

Personally, I think people like Hussein, even if they truly believe that they didn't do anything all that wrong, should be made responsible and held accountable for past murderous behavior in a proper and serious court of law. I also think this should done with some consistency, including going after anyone else who aided and abetted in such activity. However, I have no use for the sort of pickin' 'n' choosin', half-ass, mock-trial sort of "justice" that was evidently dished out to Hussein. Trials where life and death are to be decided should be done right or not at all. I think.

Ideally, you're right. The problem is that Iraq is in a state of anarchy right now. The lawless are running the place and something like this might inspire a massive response by the Sunnis nd whatever Baathists are still around. So this "justice" might come at a very high price in lives. It would really be shame if the legacy of Saddam's trial is hundreds or thousands more dead Iraqis. We'd pacified Germany by the time of the Nuremburg trials, and that's the biggest difference between then and now.

Actually, Iraq, as a whole, isn't "in anarchy" right now. Outside of a few places (covering about 1/3 of their population), things are pretty good. Even in the "bad places," Iraq is more stable and has more true rule of law than many of its neighbors.

There's an actual central government, with a real (though not completely trained) police force, and a populace that's, overall, trying to get on with their lives. The economy is growing very fast, as well - you don't have that in actual anarchies.

Cirby: There is a central government just like there is in Kabul. But like Kabul, the authority of that government doesn't extend much beyond the certain parts of the capital city. The test of the Maliki's power would be whether or not he can reduce terrorists' ability to act and it's clear that he has not. I agree that these terrorists are not equally active all over the country, but they are concentrating their activities where it's most effective, and up to now at least, nobody's stopping them. I just wish there was somebody out there who is sympathetic to the cause of democracy that people on all sides of the violence could at least respect -- finding that person is the key to turning things around.

Lee:

The concern over Saddam's execution is understandable but misplaced in my estimation. A violent flare-up in response, if it occurs, should be short-lived.

The Iraqi nations need this closure... and the insurgents aren't fighting in support of Saddam's regime, they're fighting to rid their country of its occupiers. Once we leave the violence will subside and the Iraqi people can rebuild their country, and executing Saddam is something that we have to accomplish before we leave.

Let the swing begin.

Jeff Irvin:

I am not a big fan of the death penalty, not because I think killing people is an "absolutely" horrible thing to do--some people just need killin', as they say. However, I have to wonder what message it sends to the world when the United States ensures the death of one man for his crimes against humanity while allowing another (e.g., Augusto Pinochet) to die of old age.

Those who think the death of Saddam Hussein will somehow improve the situation in Iraq, I fear, will be sadly disappointed a year from now. Why?

Well, I had a thought this morning that may provide an answer. It is because United States foreign policy is based on the premise of dominance rather than defense.

Now, before people start posting that I am somekind of "appeaser" or "peace-nik" I would like to say that I believe in a strong national defense. In fact, I support a policy that I like to call the "don't screw with us" foreign policy. It basically works like this. If you do something that threatens our national security--not national interest since they are not always the same thing--then we will come down on you like a ton of bricks. We won't give you any warning, no entreaties to behave yourself, no diplomacy, just wholesale destruction until you learn your lesson.

Iraq is a perfect example of the attempt by the United States to dominate rather than defend itself. In short, we have spent over $300 billion to kill one pathetic excuse for a human being.

What is unfortunate is that our present foreign policy--which is not completely a Bush policy or a neo-con policy--will, in the end, neither allow us to dominate the world nore effectively defend ourselves.

In other words, the death of Saddam Hussein will be a Pyrrhic victory when seen from the vantage point of the not-too-distant future.

The hearings should start around February or March. You will be amazed at the crimes Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld will be accused of, and the hearings will drag on for for the better part of a year, so there is lots of time ahead of us to discuss the specifics and their merits.

For starters, the Bush administration's lies over the reasons for going to war with Iraq will keep bloggers like this one breathless and on the edge of their seats, as the nation learns more about the lies we were told... oh wait, my bad -- we don't see much, if anything, in the way of coverage from Wizbang writers once the truth comes out. JP's post regarding Haditha perfectly illustrates that.

So I'll help.

Neglecting Intelligence, Ignoring Warnings (1/28/2004)

Former weapons inspector David Kay now says Iraq probably did not have WMD before the war, a major blow to the Bush Administration which used the WMD argument as the rationale for war. Unfortunately, Kay and the Administration are now attempting to shift the blame for misleading America onto the intelligence community. But a review of the facts shows the intelligence community repeatedly warned the Bush Administration about the weakness of its case, but was circumvented, overruled, and ignored. The following is year-by-year timeline of those warnings.

Rumsfeld's lies about the torture of detainees at Abu Ghraib, and the billions and billions of tax dollars that went to lining the pockets of Cheney's pals will keep these three stooges in the limelight all year.

One thing that supports the... (Below threshold)

One thing that supports the concept of an execution either in hours or in one week:

Eid al-Adha...

The Muslim holiday, a feast marking the end of the hajj, begins Saturday for Sunnis and (I believe) Sunday for the Shi'a. Executing him on either of those days is sure to offend one group or another. This gives reason to believe that his execution will likely be timed to occur before the official beginning of Eid al-Adha (Sunrise, I again believe) or after the holiday completes (4 days) due to fears of stoking any brand of sectarian flare up that can be avoided.

So, either the rope dangles soon, perhaps in minutes if not already carried out, or it waits for mid-week.

If you hear nothing in the next few hours, you can likely turn to other events and shelve this for now.

Two cents.

"Wizchoir?" I belong to no such group. However if you want to include me in your deluded reality go right on ahead. It's only in your head , what ever makes you happy.

I'll go in on the "Swinging Saddam" action figure set. It'll look great on my desk next to my Muhammad bobble-head (yes, I actually own one).

But I'll pass on the DVD thank you.

To LissaKay: are you sure you got all of my Usenet/Newsgroup "screed"? In one of my posts further down, I presented a rather fair amount of cites showing glaring, shall we say, "discrepencies" between the public statements of Powell, Cheney, and Bush and what the evidence they had to have had in hand was indicating: http://tinyurl.com/y27hlk

By any commonly accepted definition of the word "lie," Bush and his staff did so, repeatedly and relentlessly in all things Iraq related. And considering how Clinton got impeached over his verbal foreplay of "sexual relations" involving Monica Lewinsky, how are we to regard much more blatent lying and deception over a far, FAR more serious matter?

"Who is going to testify against Bush? Joe Wilson? Sandy Berger?"

What's more interesting is who could be put under oath to reassert their claim that Saddamn has WMDs: Bill Clinton, John Kerry, Al Gore, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Hillary Clinton, Breck Boy Edwards, Osama Hussein. Let the hearings commence: If the Dems waste two years on fishing expeditions they'll find themselves back out of power.

BC or is it Bull Crap?

Either was you are full of it and you are ignorant by choice and or just a dumbass liar. No one has lied and you know it which is why you are soi desperate because you can't paint the republicans as liars regardless if you are in the Majorty. By 2008 all the lies and media smears will be exposed and back down will go the perpetual lying frauds back where they belong , OUT OF POWER.

In regards to that comment, be thankful that:

A) This is not Usenet where I don't suffer such displays of, shall we say, "ignoramus buffoonery."

B) I've decided to be on my best guest behavior in this strange pale blue environment in the spirit of the holiday season.

C) We don't casually dispose of people in this country just because they are really, really dumb, clueless, hateful of facts, and generally not of any benefit to society.
