The video of the hanging is all over the internet, and was all over CNN this morning. All of the TV stations were of course careful to end the video before the actual hanging, thankfully. It's not exactly an image I want to have anyway. But it did make me wonder....how is it that Hussein's hanging is deemed too graphic for our delicate tastes, yet CNN and some of the other news channels had absolutely no problem airing the video a few weeks back of an Iraqi sniper killing an American soldier? Just sayin'.
