BAGHDAD (AP) - The prime minister on Tuesday ordered an investigation into the conduct of Saddam Hussein's execution in a bid to learn who among the witnesses taunted the former Iraqi leader in the last minutes of his life, then leaked a cellphone video.

The video contained audio of some witnesses taunting Saddam with chants of "Muqtada" and of the former leader responding that his tormentors were being unmanly. It surfaced on Al-Jazeera television and the Internet late Saturday, the day Saddam was hanged.

The taunts referred to Muqtada al-Sadr, the radical Shiite cleric who is a main backer of Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, the Shiite leader who pushed for a quick execution of Saddam.

I agree I don't why the Iraqi government is bothering to investigate the leaking of the Saddam execution Video when the country is in the middle of a civil war. The government of Iraq should be focused on finding a military solution to the civil war.

Ya I don't see an issue on who released the video. What i want to know is why did they make his execution so fast.. That makes no sense. People everywhere else get millions of yrs to plead their case... Saddam got what 1 yr and some odd days.. Makes no sense to me..
