Official: Saddam Execution Will Occur by 6 AM Baghdad Time

The AP is reporting:

A top Iraqi official said Saddam will be executed before 6 a.m. Saturday, Baghdad time, or 10 p.m. Friday EST.

I'm checking the District of Columbia docket and as of 5:17 pm, there has been no order issued on the stay of execution request yet.

I have uploaded the stay request here.

With Saddam's execution set for hours from now, I'm going to switch to a single execution watch thread, rather than keep posting separate entries.

    Hmmm.... but Qaddafi kills 270 people on Pan Am Flight 103 but is now considered an ally by big oil interests and the bush fascists - hypocracy anyone?
