Hanged before the start of the Eid religious holiday
Eid al-Fitr is probably the most important Islamic holiday, and occurs on the day following the month of Ramadan. A joyous feast is celebrated among the community. Literally the "Festival of Breaking the Fast," Eid al-Fitr is one of the two most important Islamic celebrations (the other occurs after an individual engages in the Hajj, or pilgrimage to Mecca). At Eid al-Fitr people dress in their finest clothes, adorn their homes with lights and decorations, give treats to children, and enjoy visits with friends and family.
Eid ul Adha marks the end of the Hajj, which is an annual pilgrimage of Muslims to Makkah (Saudi Arabia). This pligrimage is an obligation once in a lifetime for those who are physically and financially able to perform it. Eid ul Adha is celebrated with prayers.

Saddam Hussein's farewell letter
By Anadolu News Agency (aa), Baghdad
Thursday, December 28, 2006
“I’ll be executed like a sacrifice,” said ousted Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein in a letter published Wednesday on the Baath party website.
The letter, whose authenticity was confirmed by Saddam’s defense team, came just a day after his death sentence was upheld by an Iraqi court of appeals. Dated Nov. 5, the letter addressed the Iraqi people and called upon them to eschew hate and be an example of forgiveness and brotherly love.
Saddam said in his letter that he would be executed as a sacrifice, and if God wills it, would be placed among martyrs and great men.
In his letter Saddam referred to both the American military and Iran as invaders dividing the Iraqi people and sowing the seeds of discord.

WASHINGTON -- Bad guy of 2006: President George W. Bush. Good guy of 2006: President George W. Bush.
When people were asked in an AP-AOL News poll to name the villains and heroes of the year, Bush topped both lists, in a sign of these polarized times.
Among entertainment celebrities, Oprah Winfrey edged out Michael J. Fox as the best celebrity role model while Britney Spears outdistanced Paris Hilton as the worst.
Bush won the villain sweepstakes by a landslide, with one in four respondents putting him at the top of that bad-guy list. When people were asked to name the candidate for villain that first came to mind, Bush far outdistanced even Osama bin Laden, the terrorist leader in hiding; and former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein, who is scheduled for execution.
The president was picked as hero of the year by a much smaller margin. In the poll, 13 percent named him as their favorite while 6 percent cited the troops in Iraq.
