Baghdad, Iraq (AHN) - According to reports, former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein has been executed at approximately 10:00 PM EST, 9:00 PM CST, 6:00 AM, local Baghdad time.
The Pentagon on Friday said that U.S. forces in Iraq are on high alert as they brace for any violence that might occur following the execution.
Byan Whitman, spokesman for the Pentagon said, "U.S. forces in Iraq are obviously at a high state of alert at this time because of the environment that they operate in and because of the current security situation."

So, Do you feel a lot safer now? About 3,000 people died working on 9-11. By now, over 3,000 US soldiers have died in Iraq and something over 20,000 have been wounded. Do you think the killing of Sad. H. was worth that?
Executing heads of state may have some unforseen consequences. There are more than a few people in the world who view George Bush, Dick Cheney, Don Rumsfeld, Henry Kissinger, et al as war criminals. How many Iraqis has George Bush had killed? How many "enemy combatants" who have not done anything to harm the US and had no intention of harming the US or us...take your pick.. have been tortured in violation of ideas of simple civilization and the Geneva Conventions?
There are now estimates that the war in Iraq has or will cost US taxpayers $2 Trillion with all costs figured in including continuing military costs and associated social and medical costs, etc. spread out for years into the future.
There are estimates that $3 Trillion would put in place enough wind power systems to remove our need for foreign oil.
This seems to suggest that Bush family vengeance has perverted common sense in favor of world power familial tribal revenge.
