    NEW YORK — A graphic new video surfaced Monday on the Web appearing to show the body of Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein immediately after he was hanged a little more than a week ago.

    The 27-second video, posted on Google, appears to show Saddam's body on a gurney, covered with a bloodied white shroud that is removed so the person videotaping — possibly with a cell phone camera — has a clear shot at his head and neck. A large and gaping wound is visible on the neck.

    A video purporting to show the body of Saddam Hussein is posted on Google Video.

    Warning: The content is very graphic and may be disturbing to some viewers.

    Generalissimo Francisco Franco reports that Saddam is still dead.

    i won't be clicking on that link but i have no problem with his execution being slightly less than humane.

    Why would there be a gaping wound on his neck from a hanging? Just curious and I don't really want to click on the link.

    Well the rope ain't exactly like a brace, so much as an abrasive bunch of twine put together. That's all that's stopping gravity from sending his ass down to the floor. Skin doesn't exactly take kindly to abrasions like that.

    I see. So is that why they normally make hanging victims wear hoods? And also, is that why they tie the cloth around the person's neck?
  10. Anyone see the pictures of Saddam's cat?
