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.
