As an attorney, I do not place one bit of faith in an appellate system that gives so little time to an appeal for a death sentence. I have no personal doubt that he deserved death--but I believe that an effective SYSTEM should exist to ensure fairness.

Further, the video I saw of his execution simply disgusted me. The hooded characters and chanting were unsettling.

I have no faith in the Shia with whom we have put in power. To me, they are as heathen and brutal as Hussein himself.

They are not worth one of our brave troops and a pox upon them!
