Chemical Ali to Hang

Ali Hassan al-Majid, known as Chemical Ali and one of Saddam Hussein’s most notorious henchmen, was sentenced to death last June and the Iraqi lawmakers have paved the way for his execution.

Officials from Iraq’s three-member presidency council said on Friday that Mr. Majid will be turned over by his American jailers and executed shortly.

He was sentenced to death last summer after an Iraqi tribunal found him guilty of leading the so-called Anfal operation in the late 1980s that killed as many as 180,000 Kurds.

Good riddance to bad rubbish.

Snooper, over at A Newt One says:

Chemical Ali, the guy that used WMDs that Saddam didn't have to murder THOUSANDS of the citizens that were never annihilated with the WMDs that Saddam didn't have.

If you didn't detect the sarcasm in the above statement, you are very dumb.

Good point.
