Good thing Saddam is out of power.

Iraq said it executed 27 “terrorists” in Baghdad on Wednesday after they were convicted of murder and rape.

The convicts came from a number of Iraq’s 18 provinces, the government said in a brief statement issued late on Wednesday.

“The death penalty was carried out on 27 terrorists in Baghdad, they were executed after the criminals were convicted in Iraqi courts for carrying out acts of murder and rape,” it said.

So, common rapists and murders are considered to be “terrorists” in the New Iraq?

Did these people undergo any procedure we might recognize as due process?
