    Former iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein has been executed. Saddam had been sentenced to death for the killing of 148 people who were detained after an attempt to assassinate him in the northern iraqi city of Dujail in 1982.
    Tuesday, an iraqi appeals court upheld that conviction.

    An iraqi official told the Associated Press Friday that those cleared to attend the execution included a Muslim cleric, lawmakers, senior officials and relatives of victims of Saddam's brutal rule.

    Saddam is now being judged - and being given perfect justice - by God on high. He has passed from this world, an illuminator of how cruel humans can be and, we hope, a lesson for all those who would emulate him. This is what we have wrought in iraq - that the tormenter of iraqis should be judged by legitmate iraqi courts under the rule of a legitimate, elected iraqi government. What Saddam never dreamed of allowing the meekest of his victims has been allowed to him.
