The Smoking Signature Redux

The prosecutors in the trial of Saddam Hussein have finally introduced what could be the critical pieces of evidence: a document signed by Awad al-Bander (one of the co-defendants) announcing that 148 Shiites had been sentenced to death with all the names attached, and another signed by Hussein himself approving all 148 executions. If the documents are proven to be legitimate, then this probably seals the fate of Hussein. I, for one, will watch (if possible) as he swings from a Iraqi gallows, receiving justice from those to whom he gave none andwhose freedom he could not crush.
