    from the AP, they say it is authentic


    They have also moved a video screen grab and a close up of Saddam dangling.

    Any paper out there going to run it?

    Less than 27 hours. Not bad.

    I can't get that one to open. But Mystery_Meat posted a link on the Saddam thread earlier that might be the same thing.
  4. It will work if you have Quicktime on your computer.

    It's hardly worth watching.

    It does look like Hussein, but the camera jogs a lot.

    It opened as a quicktime video for me.
    AP also has the video, and NYPost.com has a link to see the video as well, but I need to download something something to make it work.
    It may be the same video posted on another thread.
    I was just curious to see if anyone would actually use the pictures. The one of him dangling is pretty F-ed up.
    I'd post the photo the AP moved, but I don't know how.
    Just get on the wire and look for it if you are at work. AP has two, one right before he drops and the other of him after with the noose around his neck.

    Authentic, no question.

    Looks like someone snuck in a small camera. Note how camera walks up stairs after Saddam is almost ready to get the noose.

    View this along with the NYT story on how the execution was carried out and the back and forth between Saddam and the Shiites. Great stuff.

    nice work ellis
  11. Thanks. I figured it probably wouldn't be too good an idea to post the image directly.

    At least you gave some warning with your link.

    I'm still trying to get over the time d_b posted a link to the Nick Berg beheading without saying exactly what it was.

    That was some disturbing shit.
