Botched Saddam Execution

The trial and punishment of Saddam Hussein could have helped heal Iraq-- if done right.

Instead, Saddam's execution appears to have been a ruthless, barbaric and lawless power-play.

It was bad enough that even the Bush administration is distancing themselves from it.

It's not too surprising, really, but it certainly is emblematic of the "democracy" that the US has brought to Iraq.
