Some are impressed by Saddam's impassiveness in the face of some disgraceful taunting, and that he was reciting the kalima. It is worth remembering that he has never made any statement or gesture of apology, for all the despicable acts he oversaw.
Yet his categorisation by some as a martyr will be a smokescreen, not just for the acts his regime committed, but also for the wicked intentions of those who gave him succour. The darkness of the execution room hides so much.
Still, it was decided a long time ago that Saddam's head on a stick would be a good response to 9/11. Now, it is just another death in a bloodbath, another event to further divide the ummah.
