I find it offensive and repugnant that so many websites are airing the video of Sadaam Hussein’s hanging. Essentially, the video is a snuff film, watched for its excitement value.
My disgust with this has nothing to do with the war, national or international politics, capital punishment, or any other subject of current interest. I’m against the war and the death penalty. But, I’m also against secret videotaping of an individual’s death throes, even an individual as bad as Sadaam.
