If I were Saddam I would be ashamed to show my face too.

San Francisco Chronicle has this:

Baghdad -- A woman described being stripped naked and hanged by her feet, while Saddam Hussein's half brother kicked her in the chest until her ribs cracked.

A former Baath Party guard said he saw documents signed by the ousted president ordering security forces to destroy farms and orchards near the town of Dujail, north of Baghdad.

It continues:

Testimony from witnesses included graphic descriptions of torture and killings, tales similar to earlier testimony...

Several of the defendants, though not Hussein, were fingered by witnesses as having been present or having participated at various points during the Dujail crackdown, which allegedly included mass killings and the round-up of hundreds of residents suspected of involvement in the attempt on Hussein's life.

Every soldier involved in bringing Saddam down should be proud.

I know I am proud of them.
