Well, it was to be expected, though whether from Bush/Cheney or from the Shiite Iraqi's I'm not sure. Saddam Hussein was hung just before 6:00 AM local time in Iraq on Saturday, December 30, 2006.
Now we see how the Sunni Baathist insurgents will respond. This is what CNN has to say on the subject.
In my opinion the four years that Saddam has been in prison has allowed events in Iraq to thoroughly pass him by. The Bush administration will try to take advantage of it, but there is very little advantage to be taken.
