Videoist Arrested

An Iraqi official, who is believed to have recorded Saddam Hussein's execution on a cell phone camera, was arrested on Wednesday.

Reports indicate that the person was an official who supervised the execution.

On Wednesday, an Iraqi prosecutor who was present at the execution denied a report that he had accused National Security Adviser Mowaffak al-Rubaie of responsibility for the leaked video.


"I am not accusing Mowaffak al-Rubaie, and I did not see him taking pictures.

But I saw two of the government officials who were present during the execution taking all the video of the execution, using the lights that were there for the official taping of the execution. They used mobile phone cameras. I do not know their names, but I would remember their faces

The prosecutor said that the two officials were openly taking video pictures, which are believed to be those that have now infested the web.

What a farce!

This mockery of justice hardly bodes well for the future of the "new" Iraq.
