We Brillo Our Hands Of Him
A senior official in Washington tells ABC News that Hussein will be transferred to Iraqi custody by the end of today.
The actual date for the execution is still a closely guarded secret, and will be decided on solely by Iraqis, the official says.
Hussein's lawyers say they have been told to prepare to pick up his personal effects, but they do not know when they should do that.
Recent reports have suggested Saddam will swing by Eid, an Islamic holiday that falls this weekend. The latest word also suggested that the execution would be videotaped, but not made public. Any takers on how long until the video pops up online? I say within 36 hours of the butcher's last gasp. The production will apparently have a good amount of peripheral material too, which would make a dynamite little featurette.
"We will video everything... All documentation will be videoed. Taking him [Saddam Hussein] from his cell to the execution is going to be videoed, and the actual execution will be documented and videoed."
- Iraqi National Security adviser Mouffak al Rubaie
If Saddam is being granted a last meal, is it more likely to be a spread of Iraqi delicacies or something from the land of the infidels, maybe a bucket of KFC or a new Taco Bell Encharito (with the cheese and sauce on the inside)?
Update: Only hours to go (maybe). Eat up, buddy boy.
