Saddam's Noose

Further verification that the execution of Saddam Hussein was a sectarian lynching:
A well-known Kuwaiti businessman is negotiating hard to own the noose which hung ousted Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein to death.

Reliable sources say the businessman's representatives have asked the Iraqi Ministry of Interior Affairs to sell the rope to them.

The businessman is apparently ready to pay any amount of money for the noose. According to sources, it is with Shiite leader Muqtada Al-Sadr and the businessman's representatives are negotiating with him.
My face still goes slack when I'm thinking about this. I can't quite summon the requisite surprise, or shock at this horrible news. It shorts a circuit in my head and I have to re-approach. The thought of handing such a victory to our enemy (who still hold an American soldier) just boggles me.
