I feel that Mr. Hussein was treated fairly. What damage showing minute examination of his person could possibly do to someone who put so many of his citizens to death is beyond me.
As for WWII I remember seeing photos of Nazi war criminals hanging from scaffolds. The charred remains of what had been Hitler. Musolini and his mistress stripped and bloody, hanging upside-down from a lampost.
In Life magazine.
The corpse littered beach at Tarawa. The PILES of emaciated corpses at Auschwitz. The newsreels of decaying bodies being bulldozed into open pits, the GI's operating the 'dozers with handkerchiefs over their faces, tears streaming down their faces. The weeping British soldier standing over a huge pile of children's shoes at Treblinka.
There is no dignity in murder. Not the victims', not the murderer.
Saddam Hussein is being treated and will continue to be treated with a great deal more dignity than he dispensed himself and more than he deserves.
