|During a rare television interview, President
Bush Tuesday night called for the execution of Saddam Hussein
saying he should face “the ultimate penalty.” But he said
Hussein’s fate should be left to the Iraqi people.
Meanwhile Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld announced the CIA
is now heading up the interrogation of Hussein although the
captured leader remains in military custody. Rumsfeld echoed the
White House line that Saddam was being treated in accordance
with the Geneva Convention rules governing prisoners of war, but
said his final status was being closely studied.
