Saddam hanging video leaked to internet (WARNING: VERY GRAPHIC!!!!)
I debated a long time whether or not I would post the actual footage of Saddam's hanging. I'm not the biggest fan of graphic content so instead of embedding the video, I'll just provide a link to the footage and give a transcript of what was said.
It seems like this clip was taken with a cellphone so I'm sure there will be more videos of this hanging popping up on the internet soon.
UPDATE: The Sun has more details into the execution.
According to Yahoo, this is what happens when the people are yelling.....Now, if they can only find those weapons of mass destruction.
Guard: "You have destroyed us! You have killed us! You have made us live in destitution!"
Saddam: "I have saved you from destitution and misery and destroyed your enemies, the Persian and Americans."
Guard: "Goddamn you."
Saddam: "Goddamn you."
-Saddam, smiling, taunts the guards by saying "they were not showing manhood"-
Saddam: "I testify that there is no God but Allah, and I testify that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah. I testify that there is no God but Allah, and I testify that Muhammad-"
-The floor drops when Saddam is mid way through the his second recitation of the Muslim prayer "Shahada"-
Guard: "The tyrant has fallen!"
