Losing His Head?
Now comes word that two more executions have taken place in Iraq, those of the former Chief judge of Saddam's kangaroo courts that sentences thousands, if not tens of thousands to death and Saddam's half brother. Seems there was a little glitch however:
The official government video of the side-by-side hanging that was shown to a small group of reporters, including one from The Associated Press, showed Ibrahim and al-Bandar wearing red prison jumpsuits. As they reached the gallows, black hoods were put on their heads and five masked men surrounded them.
The video showed the trap doors opening. Al-Bandar could be seen dangling from the rope, while Ibrahim's body in a blur fell to the floor, chest down, his still-hooded severed head resting several yards away.
