TO BEGIN 2007, I'M SHARING ALL THE CIVIL LIBERTIES LINKS THAT I CAN GET MY HANDS ON. MOST OF THE GOOD CIVIL LIBERTIES ORGANIZATIONS HAVE COME OUT EVEN STRONGER FOR A RESTORATION OF OUR RIGHTS AND LIBERTIES, FOR DOING AWAY WITH THE POLICE STATE, FOR EDUCATION OF THE CITIZENS ABOUT THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS, AND FOR WATCHING THE JUDICIAL, LEGISLATIVE, AND THE EXECUTIVE BRANCHES FOR MORE INFRINGEMENTS AND VIOLATIONS OF CITIZENS RIGHTS, IN PARTICULAR, THOSE OF THE FIRST AMENDMENT:

Blog on Crime, Very Indepth (Includes the actual video Hanging of Saddam Hussein:
Video Article of Hanging:
ABC News reports a cell phone by one of those present at the execution of Saddam Hussein recorded insults being made to Saddam and Saddam responding with an obscenity...it also records the actual hanging with his body falling through the trap door in the floor.
ABC doesn't link to the actual video, but here it is. Since I can't understand the language, I can't make out the words. Saddam's expression doesn't seem to change much to me.
Hanging is barbaric. See for yourself.
Update: Law Prof Doug Berman of Sentencing Law and Policy weighs in on publicizing the video.
WARNING....GRAPHIC....NOT FOR THE SQUEAMISH.
