Death of a Tyrant
There's some harrowing footage of Saddam's last moments available at Zeyad's blog, Healing Iraq. Apparently, one of those present at the execution captured the hanging on his cellphone camera. Saddam executed thousands of Iraqis, but to me this footage is a powerful statement about the barbarity of capital punishment. Definitely not recommended for the faint of heart.
