Official confirmation awaits.

Via CNN:

Former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein has been executed, according to two Arabic language media outlets.

Hussein was hanged before dawn on Saturday in Iraq, at about 6 a.m. (10 p.m. Friday ET), the U.S.-backed Al-Hurra television reported.

Also here on FOXNEWS:

BAGHDAD, Iraq Saddam Hussein, the former president of Iraq, was executed by hanging shortly before dawn on Saturday in Iraq, Arab media outlets reported.

The U.S. military and FOX News have not yet confirmed that the execution has taken place. Al Jazeera, Al Arabiya wire services and U.S.-backed TV station Al Hurrah reported his death.

The man dubbed the Butcher of Baghdad was convicted of crimes against humanity for the killing of 148 Shiite men and young boys after their failed assassination attempt in 1982 in the village of Dujail.

More on why he was executed here.

For reaction from Iraq see comments on Mohammed's post at Iraq The Model.

Also see See Dubya at Hot Air, In The Bullpen and Gateway Pundit has an excellent post rounding up Saddam's brutality.

Have a laugh at the Looney Tunes coverage of the event.

because we are going to hit the 3.000 mark tomorrow. and they want to preempt the news about that.

Yes, Kos Kidz, the execution of Saddam was nothing more than a ploy to cover up the news of the next Grim Milestone. Morons.

12/30 A.M. Update: Hot Air has added video of the preparations. Scroll down.
