Interesting idea. I really don't see it working, though. Mind you, I am not so sure that executing him is such a smart idea either. I can see the Sunnis getting mightily upset over this, which will only keep US troops in Iraq much longer than would otherwise be necessary. Perhaps it would have been better to do as we did to Zacarias Moussaoui. He's going to be locked up for the rest of his miserable life, unable to claim martyrdom. Yes, I know we have to pay for his keep, but if it stops even one person from converting to the cause, it is a small price to pay. Likewise with Saddam. Why not let him rot in jail?
