This afternoon in Baghdad Saddam Hussein was sentenced to death by hanging.
BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- Saddam Hussein was sentenced Sunday to death by hanging for his role in a brutal crackdown nearly 25 years ago in Dujail --
the once obscure Iraqi town that is now a symbol of his regime's cruelty.
Also sentenced to death were Barzan Hassan, Saddam Hussein's half-brother and former head of the intelligence agency, and Awad Bandar, the former
chief judge of the Revolutionary Court.

Once hearing of his sentence Saddam responded "God is Great" to that thought I agree, how sweet justice is!
Will the Saddam verdict be the real November surprise for the midterm US elections, and if so which party will they help?
Will this decision lead to progress or more fighting in Iraq short and long term?
