But the most amazing part of this was the rush to execute him. We have heard all the stories about his brutality - the gassing of the Kurds, the crushing of the Shia uprising after the first Gulf War, the elimination of political rivals, the plans to assassinate Bush Senior. I wanted him to be put on trial for these crimes as well. But the way he was hung, it seemed that some people did not want this to happen.
Are these stories just rumors, or were other parties involved in them, too? We may never know now.
