Update: Saddam has been executed.

According to the news about the Iraqi death penalty and the failed appeal that took place, Saddam Hussein Abd al-Majid al-Takriti has to be executed sometime in the 30 days that followed the sentencing.

This means there is not a specific date or time for this special event. Executioners could show up and roust Saddam out of his cell on any day or any hour between now and January 27th. He must get nervous every time he hears footsteps outside his door. For all we know, the sentence is being carried out this very minute.

Psycho genealogist, I know you are out there. Someone post a guard at the IGI.
