An Iraqi Decision?

You have to wonder exactly who in the Iraqi government thought it would be a good idea to execute Saddam on the sabbath and coincidentally the Eid ul-Adha, the commemoration of Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice his son for G-d.

Why this couldn’t have waited until mid-week? Saddam wasn’t going anywhere and they had 30 days to take action.  This is the kind of thing the CPA did routinely.

Update: OWL, noted in comments that there are radio reports that only Saddam was executed; that the other two will be executed after the holiday.
